General News
Palm Beach Atlantic University is a partner with Complete Florida, an online program specifically for adults who have earned some college credit but stopped out before earning a degree. In Florida, approximately 2.2 million adults have earned some college credit. By 2018, approximately 59 percent of the jobs in Florida will require postsecondary credentials beyond a high school diploma. With this in mind, the State University System of Florida, the Florida College System and the Florida Legislature have made it a priority to increase the percentage of Floridians with a postsecondary credential. Complete Florida addresses this critical gap in our postsecondary landscape, with priority given to veterans and active duty military.
