A-B Tech is committed to the success of all students. Academic Advising is required for students in order to enable registration each semester. Students are assigned to faculty advisors in their individual programs of study, and Pre-Limited/Pre-Selective Program students are assigned to advisors in the K. Ray Bailey Student Services Building. Unclassified students (those not in an academic program) may self-advise or receive assistance in the K. Ray Bailey Student Services Building.
If you plan to transfer to a 4-year university or are enrolled in our AA, AS, AFA, or AE programs, you must see someone in our Transfer Advising Department. For more information about the College's Transfer Programs, visit College Transfer Advising.
Determining career goals can be hard. We have resources to help. Please visit our Career Development Services. Declaring a major early assists students in finding the quickest pathway to their goals. If you wish to receive financial aid you must be admitted to a major. To get information on declaring a major, download the New Student Enrollment Checklist.
Be sure to contact your faculty advisors at any time during the term when questions or problems arise, but especially during published advisement periods. Your assigned program advisor can be found at Program Advisor Information. You may also ask for the name of your advisor by calling the College at (828) 398-7900, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or dropping in at the First Stop in the Bailey Building. New students and those wishing to change their programs of study are welcome to schedule an appointment with the College Entry Advisor. Appointments are available daily and may be scheduled online:
For New Students Only
Students who are experiencing academic difficulty are invited to consult with a College Entry Advisor, located in the K. Ray Bailey Student Services Building. Students are strongly encouraged to seek assistance as soon as they recognize there is a problem.
