Distance Education Update
Adding DE to a Course in META (Step-by-Step)Adding DE to a Course in META (Step-by-Step). Click here to log in to META, Palomar’s Curriculum Management System.

As a reminder – the Chancellor’s Office is requiring that classes taught online this summer and fall complete the DE addendum process (in META) by Dec. 30, 2020. If you are offering a class this fall that doesn’t have a DE approval (click here for list), you will need to launch a DE approval in META by Nov. 20, 2020.  Please coordinate with the chairperson of your department to complete the work. Good News!! If you complete the work over the summer and meet the August 8 curriculum launch deadline, you will be paid $80 per class upon approval of the change by the Curriculum Committee in the fall. 

To add DE to a course, propose a “Distance Education Modify” proposal in META. This is an abbreviated proposal which will allow you to add DE only. For further assistance, see below:
