The main campus occupies a 25,000 square foot building in Boca Raton. There are also satellite campuses in Orlando and Sarasota, the latter situated in an impressive natural setting near Lake Osprey.

All three campuses have libraries with extensive print and electronic collections. In addition, the Boca Raton, Orlando, and Sarasota campuses are equipped with computer laboratories, as well as a student lounge.

The curriculum is ideal for the busy professional. Evening, weekend, and online classes are available, and students can attend part time or full time. Since many students will be rushing to class from work, all three campuses are easy accessible off major Florida interstates.

Boca Raton is situated on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. The city itself has a population of just over 80,000 people. The Boca Raton Art Museum was built in 2001 and is located in the center of the city. Fun fact: the movie Caddyshack was filmed on location in Boca Raton.
