Event Details:

Opening for classes on June 11, Palomar’s ‘Interim Village’ near I-15 and Highway 76 represents the first phase of a campus designed to serve students from Fallbrook, Bonsall and the surrounding communities for years to come.

The Interim Village consists of a 20,640-square-foot complex of state-of-the-art modular buildings and more than 700 parking spaces. The campus also offers two science labs, a computer lab, seven new classrooms, a learning resource center, and more.

Academically, Palomar will begin by offering 40 courses at its Fallbrook location this summer, ranging from biology and nursing to business and sociology. Of particular note for students interested in transferring to a CSU or UC institution are Palomar’s course clusters, available at the Fallbrook location, that provide a pathway to universities. Students taking classes only at the North Education Center may park there for free.

Attendees at the grand opening ceremony are welcome to tour the new facilities and sign up for summer classes on site! The ceremony will conclude with photo opportunities with Palomar College administrators and distinguished guest speakers as well as VIP attendees.
