Founded in 1946, Palomar College is a public, two-year community college located in San Marcos, California, approximately 30 miles north of San Diego. Students may choose from over 150 associate degree and certificate programs, complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree, train for a career, or enjoy lifelong learning.
Dr. Vikash Lakhani, Assistant Superintendent/Vice President for Student Services at Palomar, says, “The user experience of our PeopleSoft Student Center wasn’t providing the modern sophistication that our students have come to expect. We were looking for a solution that allows students and staff to conduct multiple tasks from enrollment, schedule & degree planning, financial aid, advising and communication while using one modern, singular platform. HighPoint delivers this by providing the uniform student experience that today’s student demands. We anticipate that implementing these tools will greatly enhance the user experience and contribute towards our students’ enrollment and success.”
“We are thrilled to have Palomar College join our growing family of partners in the California Community College system,” says George Amalor, Founder and CEO of HighPoint. “Palomar’s leadership saw the need to make a bold change in the technology services it was providing to its students. By investing in technology that provides immediate help to students, staff, and faculty, we anticipate a tremendous increase in student collaboration and interactions with staff and faculty in degree planning, advising, and financial aid. Students will have an easier and more intuitive way to conduct the business of being a student. We look forward to working with Palomar for many years to come.”
