Having academic flexibility is easy at Palm Beach State because most classes are only an hour and fifteen minutes long. Because many of its attendees are working adults and parents, classes are strategically created to offer subjects at all campuses during various times. A wide variety of classes are also offered one day a week during the night. This gives individuals with a standard day job the opportunity to still attend classes.
Students find it easy to fit classes into their daily schedules because most of the classes are short and are offered from early morning to late afternoon. Many students even take a class during their lunch break hour. Occasional struggles for students arise either from lack of effort or schedule overload. If a student is willing to put in the time, they will succeed. Many choose to downplay their first few semesters, thinking they can party and still get good grades. They also assume that just because it is a local college, the work won't be that hard, so they can take a lot of classes and breeze through them. All of these false precepts can lead a student down the wrong path at Palm Beach State College. Thankfully, there are individuals willing to help students when they have gone astray.
