Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, San Diego County remains in the Purple Tier of Governor Newsom’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy.  In result, most employees are working remotely.  With the exception of specific courses, the majority of Palomar College courses are delivered online.

Students in need of service should visit our virtual help desk or contact their instructors directly.  All student services are available remotely.
