Welcome to Palm Beach State College – Florida's first public community college.
Palm Beach State has proudly served our students and the residents of Palm Beach County for 80 years. From its humble beginning in 1933, the college has experienced remarkable growth, rising from a small junior college with 41 students to a comprehensive state college serving 49,000 students annually at four locations strategically located throughout the county. Courses offered via the Internet are providing thousands of students locally and from around the world access to our programs at the College.
Recognizing that each student is unique with diverse needs and goals, we strive to maintain small class sizes and offer programs to develop the whole student, including ethics, leadership and community service opportunities. Our faculty members represent some of the best educators in their programs of study, and they are dedicated to challenging our students and helping them achieve their dreams.
Palm Beach State's continuing commitment to student success has characterized the College for eight decades. We encourage you to get involved, ask questions and find out what Palm Beach State has to offer you.

President, Palm Beach State College
