Hi Comets, it’s the last day of summer before we enter the season of cozy sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes. There is some news regarding the spring semester at Palomar, in addition to a couple virtual events this week.
Spring 2021 semester to be held mostly online
To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, Palomar officials have decided to hold a majority of Spring 2021 courses remotely.
Some classes are exempt from this, however, and are listed in the update on Palomar’s site.
This decision may change depending on the state of the pandemic in the following months, so Palomar officials will keep students updated on the COVID-19 Updates page.
