Benefits to the Community

The impact of the Palomar Promise begins with individual students, but the program is designed to support the needs of our North County region by:

  • Increasing the college-going rate of local high school graduates by providing access and affordability
  • Increasing student retention from freshman to sophmore year by establishing clear academic and career pathways
  • Increasing college graduation and transfer rates by providing targeted academic, career, and financial support services and requiring students to enroll full-time
  • Increasing rates of successful graduation and transfer among at-risk and traditionally underserved students by providing targeted counseling support
  • Strengthening our regional workforce by providing students with high-quality academic and career training programs
