How do you know if Palm Beach Atlantic University is for you? Come see for yourself. Once you’re here, you’ll get a sense of our:

Supportive community — meet the faculty who will mentor, guide and encourage you

Christian-centered education — visit a classroom and see how Christian principles are woven into the learning experience.

Tropical location — see the Intracoastal Waterway from campus, walk to nearby beaches and take in the beauty that is everywhere

Open Houses

An ideal way to explore PBA is to attend one of our Open Houses. The cost is just $35, which includes three meals, snacks and a PBA T-shirt. Your parents may attend for an additional $10 each, which also includes three meals.

Our individual “campus visits” are designed around your requests and are available year round.
