Free Access to College!
The Palomar Promise is designed to provide graduating high school seniors in our K-12 public school districts with access to an affordable higher education and to increase college-going and completion rates in our North San Diego County service area.
Through a combination of free financial aid resources and academic support services, WE PROMISE to assist our students to enroll in college, stay on track to complete their academic and career development goals, and upon graduation from Palomar College either enter the workforce or transfer to the four-year college or university of their choice.
The Palomar Promise offers one year of free enrollment, text book support, and access to specialized counseling and academic support services to entering students who graduate from an eligible high school in the Palomar College service area. Entering Promise students will be required to join the First Year Experience program and meet other eligibility criteria in order to receive financial support from the Palomar Promise.
