MyCAA at Palomar College
Are you a military spouse looking to utilize MyCAA to pay for your courses at Palomar? Please read the information below to get started! We look forward to having you apart of our Palomar College Community!
How to get started:
- Visit the Base Education Center (BEC) to receive information on how to contact your MyCAA counselor. You will want to meet with a MyCAA counselor first, before working with a Palomar College counselor.
- Apply for Admissions with Palomar College.
- Schedule a Counseling Appointment to create a Palomar Education Plan and Education & Training Plan (ETP) for MyCAA.
- Submit both Education Plan and Education & Training Plan (ETP) to your MyCAA Counselor.
- Once your Education Plan and ETP are approved by your MyCAA counselor, you are ready to enroll into courses at Palomar.
- Notify Palomar College of your enrollment and use of MyCAA by email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. A staff member will add a notification to your account to prevent you from being dropped from non-payment.
- Submit an approved MyCAA pay voucher to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
- Palomar will submit billing for courses listed on the voucher 2 weeks after course start date. Once Palomar has received payment, your tuition fees will be removed from your account. *NOTE* MyCAA will ONLY pay for tuition fees. Any additional fees associated with your courses will have to be paid out of pocket or through another form of financial assistance.
- Palomar will submit grades for courses 30 days after course completion.
