Palomar College Learning For Success

A Student Guide to Learning Outcomes

Student learning outcomes – SLOs – are overall skills, knowledge, or abilities that students are expected to demonstrate after completing a course or program of study at Palomar College. Faculty have identified SLOs and assessment plans for every course and program offered at Palomar. A list of SLOs for all courses and programs is available below (last updated 11/6/19), or you can view student learning outcomes, course and program descriptions, course objectives and more by visiting our curriculum management software, META.

The College has also identified a set of College outcomes, known as our General Education/Institutional Learning Outcomes.
