Who We Are

As of August 2021, we are pleased to support students by adding a variety of other functions to our department, such as application workshops and support after the application period.

Outreach Services, established in 2017, is now Outreach and Onboarding Services. We serve the College’s prospective student population. Serving as official representatives of Palomar College providing presentations, tours and information tables, we help varied audiences understand the degrees, services and opportunities that Palomar has to offer. The department works with prospective students at varied educational levels, from career changers to high school students, to re-entry and adult students, to military and veterans, to those who solely want to brush up on a skill or two. Serving as one of many departments throughout the College who engage with the community we are proud to be the first stop for prospective students to explore Palomar College and the Community College system.
