Obviously the type of learning environment created varies from professor to professor, but one can always expect small class sizes. Many of the courses considered to be high risk (those that have a greater percent of students withdrawing or failing due to rigorous coursework) have supplemental instructors (SI's) who hold study sessions outside of class and are more than willing to help. Though the courses at this college are not considered to be difficult, I have still found myself learning a great deal more than most would have expected. The upper-level math and science professors (specifically those at the Eissey campus)...

    pbsc is a good stepping stone school. it does its job as a decent two year school but it's best to transfer. overall the professors are ok, you'll get out of it what you put in.

    I am a mother of three that dropped out of school when I was 16. At the age of 25 got my GED, and finally have time in my busy life to do what I should of done a long time ago and go back to college. I did not know anything about college how to apply basically went off the internet and applied to PBSC. Since the first day everyone was so rude and unhelpful. I applied for FAFSA myself, did not receive any confirmation after the application. Went to the school several times because calling is worthless you WILL NOT get thru. About two weeks before payment was due I read online that my tax transcript had to be from the IRS. I ordered it and it did not come in time. I ended up have to call a COMPLETE different school and they had to explain everything. Matter of fact he told me I could go straight to the IRS office and pick up the paper I needed, which I did. I went straight to the school for them to tell me my classes will be dropped they cannot do anything, they made it clear that everything was my fault, basically made me feel poor saying we all know it can't be paid out of pocket so let's just forget about asking for help. Like ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?! How can you put people down like that. Not once did anybody sit down to speak or explain anything to me. I'm officially registered with Lincoln College and am very happy I am not with PBSC. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL.

    PBSC is a solid college with great professors and a quality atmosphere. It is great to start your college education and then transfer from there. The campuses are convenient and definitely worth going to considering it is a state school.

    Palm Beach State College is a great college to attend. One of the reasons is because there are a variety of well prepared professor that are willing to help you. Also they have many labs for Math, Science, English, etc..
