Dear Panther Community,
As always, the safety and health of our students, faculty and staff is a foremost concern for Palm Beach State College.
You have questions, we have answers
The Center for Student Accessibility ( CSA) will provide information and advising appointments to students via email, Skype conference call, or Skype online video meetings. Skype communication will be coordinated between students and advisors or managers.
When students are contacting CSA, they should have their student id number available and be prepared to verify their identity to continue to protect their privacy. Students are to make accommodation requests by email to their assigned advisors. New students may make accommodation requests by contacting the manager of the campus of their choice.
Contact information per campus is listed below.
Belle Glade & Loxahatchee Groves

Remote testing will be offered for certain types of testing.
If the test is for an online course, your instructor has made it available to take from home. If it's a "make up" or "missed test", you will need to make arrangements with your instructor because these tests are unavailable to be taken through a remote format. Please check with your instructor for questions regarding these types of tests.
If the test is for PBSC placement or other tests, remote access may be available through the Testing Center website, www.palmbeachstate.edu/testing
It’s possible, depending on whether you withdraw from the entire semester or stay
enrolled in one course or more. If you withdraw from ALL of your courses, you could
have part, or all, of your federal funding returned creating a balance owed that you
have to pay back. For additional questions, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you withdraw from one or more of your courses, but stay enrolled in at least one course and you pass that course, your financial aid will not be affected. If you have additional questions, please email email@example.com.
Please keep in mind that withdrawing from any or all of your classes could potentially impact your Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). If you have SAP questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
