Student eServices Tutorials

   
Palomar College has a fully automated application and registration system. Students can apply and enroll online. To be eligible to enroll or register in classes, students must have a current application on file. Returning students who have missed one semester must re-apply in order to receive an enrollment appointment or to receive access to the system in the open enrollment period.

All class enrollments (registration) are processed online using eServices. Online enrollment appointments are issued and students can enroll at their appointment day and time or anytime after. Students with current, updated applications may enroll without an appointment during the Open Enrollment period.

eServices Operating Hours:
Monday - Saturday            6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Sunday                            6 a.m. to 4 p.m.
