Palomar College has announced it will continue to deliver most of its lectures online during the fall 2020 semester. Campus leaders said the decision is based on warnings about a potential COVID-19 re-emergence during the autumn season.

“Our faculty, staff and administration are working hard to bring students a comprehensive schedule of courses this fall and to outline requirements and options as clearly as possible,” said Dr. Jack Kahn, acting superintendent and president. “We have focused on the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff during this crisis, and will continue to do so as the situation unfolds.”

Classes that may prove difficult to convert to remote format might be conducted in person, on campus, said a Palomar spokesperson, and will be discussed on a case-by-case basis by division deans and department chairs. Registration for the fall semester begins June 4, 2020 and the class schedule is to be completed by end of May.
