Palomar College Learning For Success

Benefits to the Community

The impact of the Palomar Promise begins with individual students, but the program is designed to support the needs of our North County region by:

  • Increasing the college-going rate of local high school graduates by providing access and affordability
  • Increasing student retention from freshman to sophomore year by establishing clear academic and career pathways
  • Increasing college graduation and transfer rates by providing targeted academic, career, and financial support services and requiring students to enroll full-time
  • Increasing rates of successful graduation and transfer among at-risk and traditionally underserved students by providing targeted counseling support
  • Strengthening our regional workforce by providing students with high-quality academic and career training programs

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.
