Palmdale Site becomes Palmdale Center

Antelope Valley College’s Palmdale Site at 1529 E. Palmdale Blvd. is now officially Palmdale Center, following action by college trustees Feb. 8.

The center designation is another step toward becoming a campus.

College officials learned last month through the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office that the Palmdale Site was one of several centers that were “grandfathered” with that designation.

In addition, the Chancellor’s Office confirmed that the center would be eligible for an additional state allocation of close to $1 million once it reaches 1,000 full-time equivalent students (FTES) – a target AVC officials hope to attain in the current fiscal year.

If the Palmdale Center does reach the 1,000 FTES milestone in 2009-10, it would receive the allocation in 2011, according to officials.
