The different types of advisors and how to consult with an advisor
Types of Advisors
There are several main types of advisors:
- Student Advisors can assist new students with enrolling at A-B Tech as well as returning students seeking to change majors. Student advisors also assist students interested in applying to Selective Allied Health Programs or Limited Programs. They speak with visiting students seeking prerequisite overrides, general advice about what classes to take, etc. Additionally, they assist International students.
- Transfer Program Advisors are available to assist students who are seeking to transfer from A-B Tech to another school, including students in the Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Science (A.S.), Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.), and Associate in Engineering (A.E.).
- Program/Faculty Advisors assist students who are enrolled in specific academic programs, most commonly with setting up Plans. Most students enrolled in a program of study have been assigned a specific program/faculty advisor. You can find your assigned advisor by visiting abtech.edu/myadvisor or you can contact us at (828) 398-7900 or email@example.com.
