Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
I absolutely feel I'm getting my moneys worth. i would not trade this school for any other one. PBA prepares you to be a strong christian in a none christian world! they give you everything that you need to be successful in the world.
Brittany from Saint Cloud, FL
The teachers and there willingness to help makes PBAU worth it, you couldn't find a better school.
Kristina from Ocala, FL
Yes, PBA is a little heavy on the pockets, but we have the BEST reputation. For job opportunities while a student, or after graduating, we always get picked first. The beach is a nice mile away from campus on the Island, and you barely know your walking for 20 or less minutes because the scenery is breath taking. The Intercoastal Waterway is right across the street from Campus and it is perfect for those late night walks with friends. The education is phenomenal as long as you apply yourself.
Aleia-Lauren from Goose Creek, SC
For a private school, it's not too bad. They do offer a decent amount of merit-based aid, based on your test scores/high school GPA. Financial aid and work-study jobs are also available for those who qualify. Basically, if you diligently apply for scholarships, you won't end up breaking the bank. It helps if you're from Florida, as Bright Futures and the Florida Resident Access Grant will cover a chunk of the cost. There are also departmental scholarships for certain majors (Theatre, etc.). One bit of advice: Check online for books; the bookstore doesn't always have the cheapest prices, and you can save lots of money renting/getting used books elsewhere.
Student from West Palm Beach, FL
It is worth paying a great amount for this university because there is an excellent education and a great ambient to live in.
Francis from West Palm Beach, FL
It is a little expensive seeing as it is a private school but it is definitely worth it. Especially if you are going for your Doctorate of Pharmacy.
Justin from Royal Palm Beach, FL
this school is expensive, but i think it is worth it if you are wanting this atmosphere.

Worth the amount of money I have to pay.
