Many of our students desire to take classes at Palomar Community College.  Palomar does allow our students to attend their campus with special permissions.  Follow the directions below and on Palomar's website if you wish to enroll in any of their classes.
  • If you wish to receive credit towards RBHS graduation for taking a class - discuss with RBHS Records Office or your RBHS counselor BEFORE taking the class.  RBHS Records Office can tell you if the class has been previously approved for PUSD credit, or not. Form for request here.
  • Palomar Summer - Registration for classes is typically at the end of April.  However, courses may be available to view online or in their catalog earlier.
  • If you are under 16 years of age, then permission to attend each class must be requested of the Palomar faculty member who will sign the K-12 Special Admissions Approval form if permission is granted. Palomar Admissions Staff will process your enrollment in person.  (Note: You can obtain permission by emailing the Palomar professor - take a copy of the Palomar professor's reply along with your forms to your enrollment meeting at Palomar)


Instructions for enrolling in Palomar Courses Online

If you are interested in taking either the Multivariable Calculus class OR Linear Algebra, or other Palomar classes here is what you need to do:

1) Go to and "apply" to get a Palomar student ID number. 
2) Fill out this permission form: K-12 Special Permission
3) Email our registar Ms. Dickinson ( and let her know you plan to enroll - you must inform her immediately as the classes wfill quickly.  She will need your Palomar student ID # and your date of birth.
4) The K-12 Permission form requires a signature and Ms. Dickinson will help with this for you. 

5) Register for the class of your choice. NOTE that, though the classes have a campus location, these classes will be offered ONLINE only because of the COVID crisis.

These courses are tuition free (that's why you need the K12 form).  Normally, the pre-req for the course is a passing score on the Calc BC exam to be allowed to take Multivariable Calc or Linear Alg - but since your exam scores will not be available until this summer, Palomar will take Ms. Dickinson's recommendation. That's why you NEED to let HER know if you plan to enroll, so she can provide Palomar with a list of  students that are recommended for the course.

These classes will fill up fast!  Make sure you have your Palomar ID first and have followed the steps above to register.
