New education centers drive enrollment growth at Palomar College

Student enrollments are up across Palomar Community College District thanks to the new education centers in Fallbrook and Rancho Bernardo.

NORTH COUNTY – The number of full-time equivalent students enrolled at Palomar College in the current semester rose by approximately 2 percent, compared with fall 2017, district officials announced Sept. 14. Overall, the district's head count – the total number of individuals enrolled – also grew by about 1 percent year over year.

Accounting for some of the growth, the two new Palomar College Education Centers in Rancho Bernardo and Fallbrook delivered impressive numbers in their second semester of operation.

"Just three months after opening, Palomar's two new campuses have been hugely successful in drawing new students," Superintendent and President Dr. Joi Lin Blake said. "With the Rancho Bernardo and Fallbrook locations available, we are better positioned to serve all of the communities within our district, and more students are choosing Palomar College."

As the semester began in Rancho Bernardo, some 1,226 students were enrolled in 95 classes.

"These first weeks of the fall semester have proven that a Palomar College campus in Rancho Bernardo will be a benefit to the communities in the southern portion of our district – and will ultimately engage more students," South Education Center Director Tom Medel said.

In Fallbrook, enrollment reached nearly 1,100 students in 60 classes, with many students arriving from the Temecula Valley.
