Student Success Seminar

While Student Success Seminar primarily serves those students who are on Academic Warning, Academic Probation: Level 1, or Academic Probation: Level 2, any A-B Tech student can choose to take advantage of the Student Success Seminar. It's a great introduction to both College and community resources that you have available and may help you succeed during your time at A-B Tech.

Student Success Seminar is currently being offered online until further notice. We have provided a 35-minute recorded session that is easy to access and can be available for all A-B Tech students at your convenience. Please email our Student Advising & Success Coaching team directly at if you have questions or would like to connect with a Success Coach.
