Schedule New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation (NSO) sessions are available online and in person.

New Student Orientation (NSO) is available for all students online. Before scheduling NSO, you must first complete an online application to A-B Tech and receive a student ID number. Your student ID number will be emailed to you around 24 hours after completing the online application along with your A-B Tech username and password.

NOTE: Students will not be required to complete New Student Orientation if they have obtained a degree (Associate’s degree or higher) or are a visiting student from another institution and this is included in the student application to the College. If the student did not correctly complete these questions on the application and has a degree, please provide an unofficial college transcript to the Admissions Office in the K. Ray Bailey Building on the Victoria Road Asheville campus and the waiver will be placed on the student record.


Register and schedule an in-person, seated session.
