We are an open book





The Palomar College Reading Services Department offers the community a comprehensive, developmental, and transferrable reading program for students of diverse origins who have different goals, needs, and abilities.  The program strives to provide students with the skills necessary to foster life-long learning through the assimilation of material in the humanities, sciences and mathematics, and vocational areas. 

 Students receive instruction based on intensive diagnosis and individualization. The learning process is geared toward students' development of basic skills, critical reading skills, and effective reading skills.  This instruction will foster each one's success in pursuing general education, career and technical training. The program fosters transfer-readiness, promoting the positive self-concept necessary to contribute as individuals in an ever-changing global community.
