Add or Change an Academic Program

Summary

Overview of how to add or change an academic program

Choosing an Academic Program

You can view the list of academic programs offered at A-B Tech by going to abtech.edu/academicprograms.

An online tool called "Career Coach" is available to help you explore your academic and career goals.

Career counseling is offered in the Bailey Student Services Building at no charge for students intending to take classes at A-B Tech. If you are under 18 years old, you are strongly encouraged to do a basic application to A-B Tech first, which you can do at abtech.edu/apply. For more information, see abtech.edu/careers.

How to Add/Change a Program

Before selecting a major/program of study, students must first apply to A-B Tech and complete any necessary placement requirements for the program. You can add or change most academic programs (declare or change your major) in WebAdvisor. Step-by-step instructions for selecting a program online in WebAdvisor are available on our website.

If you're unable to select a program online in WebAdvisor, you may also select your program by meeting with a College Entry Advisor in the Bailey Student Services Building. Advisors meet with students on a walk-in basis, or appointments can be scheduled by emailing generaladvising@abtech.edu.

If you wish to enter a Transfer Program (A.A., A.S., A.E., or A.F.A.), you'll need to meet with a College Entry Advisor first to be placed in the program.

When You May Add/Change a Program

If you are not taking any classes that have started already, you will be able to add or change your program until the day your first class begins (based on the published start-date in WebAdvisor, not class meeting times).

If you are in classes that have already started, you can add or change a program for the spring 2018 semester through Friday, January 12. After then, you can only enroll in a program to begin in summer or fall 2018.

Financial Aid

If you're selecting a program for financial aid purposes, you should also email the Financial Aid Office at financialaidoffice@abtech.edu to let them know you have selected a program.
