Palomar officials announced that most classes are to be taught remotely throughout the Fall 2020 semester.
This decision comes as a result of the “unpredictable nature of this pandemic and the dire warnings about a re-emergence of the virus in the future despite its currently improving status,” wrote Palomar’s Acting President Jack Kahn.
Most lectures will remain online, but for lab classes that are difficult to teach digitally, Department Chairs will determine how they will be taught in-person to adhere to safety guidelines.
More information will be released about classes before the start of registration for the fall semester on June 4.
“There is always the chance that our plan for Fall 2020 will be interrupted by a
change in the COVID-19 crisis and/or a government-issued mandate,” Kahn wrote. “As we have continually stated, the health and safety of you and our faculty and staff will always remain our top priority.”
