Palomar College Dual Enrollment


General overview

BUSD has a signed a Career and College Access Pathways (CCAP) agreement with Palomar College which allows for the following:

  • Bonsall High School partners with Palomar to offer college courses on campus during the school day.  
  • BUSD covers the cost of registration fees, materials, and field trips to Palomar for these CCAP courses.

Palomar College and Mira Costa both offer courses to students in their respective districts from their full catalog.  The following restrictions apply:

  • Courses are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.  This means that students must pay close attention to deadlines for registration and paperwork requirements to be admitted to the class of their choice.
  • Some courses do not allow high school students to take priority over college students, this is particularly true in impacted courses in which the college is struggling to fill demand.
  • BHS students do not pay tuition fees, but are responsible for registration fees (typically $20) and for course materials such as textbooks.  Students are advised to investigate course material costs prior to enrollment as they can range from 0-$500/course.
  • The K-12 Enrollment Form requires the signature of Liz LaBlond, our BHS College Liaison, who will process with Palomar College.
  • Students are allowed a maximum of 7 college credits for Fall or Spring Semester and 5 college credits for Summer.
