Participation includes JumpStart (a pre-orientation program), bi-weekly mentoring/advising sessions, social activities, academic support and more.

Career Development

Palm Beach Atlantic University's Office of Career Development is dedicated to assisting our students and alumni to live out their God-given calling. Students will have the opportunity to explore their interests and goals, as well as sharpen decision-making and employment strategy skills.

First Year Experience

The First Year Experience (FYE) program offers you the academic and personal support you need to transition to PBA, including a seminar course that is an extension of your orientation. This program, with the assistance of an FYE advisor and peer mentor, will help with the creation of an academic plan for graduation. It also provides an opportunity to explore other degree programs and learn the fundamentals of being successful in college.

Transfer Experience

Our variety of transfer services offer assistance for all students interested in transferring from their current university to Palm Beach Atlantic. To assist you in the process, transcript evaluation, first semester registration, degree planning, workshops and advising are made available. Transfer students are encouraged to become a member of the Transfer Club or Transfer Peer Mentors to encourage social and academic support, allowing new students to successfully transition to PBA.
