Your PBA journey will begin with our Student Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR) program. Designed to introduce you to all things PBA, your SOAR experience will be an opportunity to familiarize yourself with campus, meet fellow first-year students, speak with faculty and staff, learn about important information and discover all the resources waiting for you.
SOAR is a one-day pre-registration event that happens in the summer before the start of your first year. And you’ll pack a lot into that one day.
SOAR isn’t just for students. We encourage parents to attend to learn about all the ways we will support and empower their students. Parents who attend SOAR learn about:
If you’re not able to travel to West Palm Beach, Florida to attend SOAR in person, you don’t have to miss out. You can take part in SOAR: Virtual, which makes it possible to gain the information and take part in the sessions from the comfort of home.
You can register for SOAR once you’ve paid your tuition deposit. Visit myPBA and complete Step #4 to register for your SOAR experience. Enter the user name and password you received after you submitted your deposit, to log into myPBA.

“We are SOAR Proponent Parents! We attended SOAR and certainly received a great deal of value. We encourage you to take advantage of doing all the administrative work in advance and being a SOAR Proponent Parent, too.” Steve and Cindy Allen, Sarasota, Florida
During SOAR you’ll learn about financial aid and discover that with scholarships, grants, loans and other aid services, PBA is just as affordable as other privates and in some cases costs less.
Orientation will introduce you to our excellent dining options across campus, which includes Jack’s, the Market, and Einstein’s ( CFA and Fraser are not open during the summer).
SOAR will provide a chance for you to tour our several residence facilities and get a feel for where you’ll spend much of your time as you form lifelong friendships.
