Guided Pathways Home

The Plan

The Guided Pathways Team is composed of Faculty, Staff, Administrators, and a student. The team met for several days in January of 2018 to put together this plan. Palomar’s goal, per the Chancellor’s Office directive, is to implement the plan over a five year period and move the college from Early Adoption to a full scale Guided Pathways Plan.

Palomar College recognizes the diversity of our students’ educational goals. Many of our students wish to move through our system efficiently, get the courses they need to transfer or obtain a career in a reasonable time frame. Our current system has many roadblocks for these students.  Palomar is developing and adopting the guided pathways framework to improve our current practices and to support students.

Please find the Guided Pathways plan below.  As ideas come in, we will continue to make improvements and post updates here:
