Discontinuance of the PWM Level II Program, effective Fall 2021:

The college will be phasing this program out through a one year process that will offer each class only one more time so that students are able to finish the program no later than spring 2021. If your educational goal is to receive a Certificate of Achievement or an Associate Degree in Public Works Management Level II from Palomar College, then you should review this plan carefully to make sure you are available to take the course the next time it is offered and then apply for your Certificate or Degree upon completion of your last course. Below is the phase out schedule of classes for this program discontinuance. All courses will be offered online.

NOTE:  PWM 60 Supervision will continue to be offered on a regular basis so students can take this class as needed and listed as WTE/WWT 60.  It is not listed in the table below.
