Student Semester Hours/Credit Hour Equivalents by Funding Category, 2016-17
More than three-quarters of Palm Beach State College's total enrollment was in the Advanced & Professional (A&P) lower-division category, which consists generally of courses that lead to an associate in arts degree.
Workforce enrollment (vocational), in the form of postsecondary vocational (PSV), postsecondary adult vocational (PSAV) and apprenticeship, made up about 14% of total enrollment. Upper-division courses claimed about 3% of total enrollment.
The bulk of vocational enrollment is found at the Lake Worth campus. Lake Worth accounted for only 41% of lower-division A&P enrollment, but 78% of PSV and 91% of non-apprenticeship PSAV hours were taken at Lake Worth. Apprenticeship programs are administered by the Lake Worth campus, and all enrollment is counted under Lake Worth.
