Palomar College Learning For Success

ME-First is all about YOU!

It’s about YOUR opportunity to start strong and grow stronger.

Enroll in transfer-level Math, English, and ESL in your first year at Palomar.
These classes will be the FOUNDATIONS for your success in college, and we’re ready to help you get started!

AB 705 (the state legislation guiding these changes) requires community college districts to maximize the probability that a student will enter and complete transfer-level coursework in math and English within a one-year time frame by utilizing assessment measures that include high school performance to achieve this goal.

Further information can be found at the California Community Colleges System’s Office web page:
To help you understand the intention of this new placement process, please watch the following video, which was developed by the Chancellor’s Office. To help you understand Palomar’s changes, we invite you to check out the menu to the left.
