Summary

Overview of how visiting students can register for classes at A-B Tech

Overview

You're considered a visiting student if you meet at least ONE of the following conditions:

  • You already have an Associate's degree or higher.
  • You are currently enrolled as a student at another college or university.

And you meet BOTH of the following conditions:

  • You do not intend to enroll as a full-time student (12 or more credits/semester).
  • You do not intend to pursue a degree, diploma, or certificate at A-B Tech.

Enrollment Steps for Visiting Students

If you're currently enrolled at another college/university and would like to take courses at A-B Tech to transfer back to your school, here are the steps you need to take:

  1. Check with your own college or university first to learn the necessary credit transfer process, and find out which credits from A-B Tech will be accepted.
  2. Review our course offerings and all prerequisite/placement requirements for any course you want to take at A-B Tech.
  3. Complete a general application to the College at abtech.edu/admissions.
  4. If you would like to take 100% online classes, you will need to complete Moodle Online Orientation, which is located in your Trailhead account.
  5. If the course(s) you're taking at A-B Tech requires a prerequisite or placement testing, obtain a copy of your college transcript (official or unofficial) and show it to an advisor in the Bailey Student Services Building (#5 on our campus map). If you're currently taking the necessary prerequisite, you'll also need to show a copy of your current schedule. If you live more than two hours away from the Asheville area, contact Distance Advising at distanceadvising@abtech.edu.
  6. Register for your desired course(s).
  7. After you complete the course(s), have A-B Tech send a copy of your transcript to your home college/university.
