The different types of advisors and how to consult with an advisor

Types of Advisors

There are four main types of advisors:

Consulting With an Advisor

Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), most advisors are currently assisting students on a virtual/online basis only.

If you are a new student or a current student wishing to change your academic program, you can schedule an appointment with the College Entry Advisor by emailing generaladvising@abtech.edu.

If you are enrolled in a Transfer Program, you will be able to schedule an appointment to consult with a Transfer Advisor through following page of our website: Transfer Advising Appointment Scheduler. You will use your A-B Tech username and password to log in. Please keep in mind you will not be able to log in to this system until you are in your program. You can also email transferadvising@abtech.edu.

You can schedule an appointment with a Pre-Limited/Pre-Selective Advisor by emailing ageadvising@abtech.edu

To consult with your faculty/program advisor, you should contact the advisor directly by phone or email. You can find your advisor's contact information at abtech.edu/myadvisor. You may also call (828) 398-7900 or email info@abtech.edu for help finding your advisor's contact information. 

Personal Counseling

A-B Tech also offers personal counseling. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please email supportservices@abtech.edu or call (828) 398-7900.
