Free Access to College!

The Palomar Promise is designed to provide first-time college students with access to an affordable higher education and to increase college-going and completion rates in our community.

What is Palomar Promise?

The Palomar Promise program was launched in 2017.  The program has since expanded to include all first-time college students. In an effort to increase accessibility of our program, we have removed previous eligibility restrictions such as school district, recent graduation year, and school type. Students must be a California resident or from an eligible exempt group (i.e. AB 540 and military dependents).

The Palomar Promise offers up to two years of free tuition, textbook assistance, and access to specialized academic and career planning with related support services to first-time college students who meet the eligibility requirements.  Palomar Promise is funded using a combination of  state, federal and local funding resources.

*Program benefits subject to available funding.

We are currently accepting applications for the Palomar Promise program for 2022-2023 academic year.

Eligible students must first apply to Palomar College. After receiving your Palomar SID, log on to your MyPalomar student portal (Student Center screen) to locate the Promise application. For more information on how to apply to Palomar Promise, click here.

*For students who have been confirmed for Palomar Promise 2021-22, please watch these videos on how to access your Promise textbook credit via the Palomar Bookstore website.
