How to use financial aid to purchase uniforms required for A-B Tech programs


If you have been awarded financial aid, you can use financial aid funds to purchase uniforms from the company Read’s Uniforms on select days.

How and When to Order Uniforms

There are select dates each semester when students with financial aid can go to Read's and charge uniforms directly to their financial aid. To see the dates when you can purchase uniforms with financial aid, refer to our Financial Aid Dates & Deadlines webpage.

Read's Uniforms has staff at the Read's location on Sweeten Creek Road to ensure students will have their uniform requirements and correct sizing. A-B Tech staff will bill students' financial aid onsite for any purchases made. Read's will then do any necessary monogramming and contact the student to pick up their uniform at Read's. This process will also ensure that students are properly attired for the first day of class.

Note: This is only for students who are using financial aid to purchase uniforms. Any students paying out-of-pocket can go directly to Read's Uniforms.

Read's Uniforms is located at:
123 Sweeten Creek Road, Ste. D
Asheville, NC 28803
