Overview of Culinary Arts and Enrollment Steps

If the maximum capacity for one of these programs is reached, a waiting list is started. The Culinary Arts A.A.S. is a two-year, five-semester program that prepares culinary professionals to work in many food service settings, such as restaurants, hotels, catering operations, and healthcare facilities.

To enroll in this program, you must:

  1. Complete a general College application.
  2. Complete placement. If taking the NC-DAP/Accuplacer placement test, you must complete all three sections (reading, sentence skills, and math).
  3. Complete the first dose of the Hepatitis A vaccine by the first day of food preparation and service classes. 

Program Renown

A-B Tech Culinary Arts students have won many state, regional, and national Culinary Competitions. Numerous graduates have held important culinary leadership positions throughout the country.

Take Culinary Classes Without Enrolling in a Program

In order to take Culinary curriculum (for college credit) classes, you must be enrolled in a Culinary program. Culinary classes are reserved for students who have met the necessary enrollment requirements for one of the Culinary programs.  

On-Campus Dining

Culinary Arts and Hospitality students offer dining experiences for the public on most Thursdays in the fall and spring semesters. A-B Tech does not currently offer any catering services.
