From day one, you’ll feel Palm Beach Atlantic’s laser focus on your future. It starts with SOAR (our Student Orientation, Advising & Registration program) -- a one-day event designed so you can hit the ground running -- and extends to Welcome Week, a weeklong tradition aimed at helping you adjust to college life. It spans throughout your time at PBA — through programs, events and services that are focused on one thing: your success.
First Year Experience
The First Year Experience (FYE) program offers you all the academic and personal support you need to transition to PBA, including a seminar course that is an extension of your orientation.
First Year Advising
From the start, you’ll team up with your FYE Advisor, a mentor who will help you create a graduation plan, choose your courses, fill out academic forms, explore majors and minors and develop study skills.
Transfer Student Advising
As a transfer student, you have lots of questions. We can help you navigate the transfer process, from determining what credits will transfer to PBA, to specifics regarding AP and CLEP exams and more.
PBA wants you to succeed. To help make this happen, we offer peer and online tutoring, academic coaching, enrichment workshops, an early alert system, and progress reporting. The Center for Writing Excellence also provides additional support.
The office for Disability Services is committed to providing access and quality service to students with disabilities. Register today.
Speaking of PBA...
“I was able to get a clear direction for the majors I was interested in, and the Office of Career Development put me in direct contact with professors, as well as other key people, who helped me narrow my search.”
