Frequently Asked Questions: Current Students

We expect to return to the office for the Fall 2021 semester. However, number of people who can be in the office will be limited. Most of the requests can be submitted online by completing the appropriate request forms posted at https://www.palomar.edu/internationalstudents/student-forms-2/ and send to internationalstudents@palomar.edu. We will send you the item requested to your student email account. We also are available to meet you on zoom meetings.

If you completed the Graduation Petition, then your Certificate or Degree will be mailed to your permanent address. The deadlines are Sept 30th for the Fall term, February 28th for the Spring term and June 30th for the Summer session. There is no deadline for CSUGE or IGETC Certification.

Please complete the Last Semester Questionnaire and send it to internationalstudents@palomar.edu. It is very important that you do this, so we can take care of your SEVIS record appropriately.

If you are transferring to another school, please also send a copy of the Acceptance email that you received and the SEVIS Release Request to internationalstudents@palomar.edu.

You can still make an online Counseling appointment. Just email internationalstudents@palomar.edu and tell us what time works for you.
