Services and hours of the Department of Transitional Studies (DOTS) program (formerly known as the Adult Basic Education/High School Equivalency Office, ABE/HSE Office, or the GED Office)
The DOTS Program offers free services to help students prepare for A-B Tech’s college-level classes. DOTS can offer you support as you work to improve your academic skills to the levels required for success in curriculum classes. You can schedule a TABE Test at abtech.edu/placement, at the link "Schedule Placement Testing." Log in using your A-B Tech username and password, then select a date from the drop-down menu on the next page for the TABE test. The Testing Center will also accept students on a walk-in basis if space allows, Monday–Thursday 9:00 a.m.–6:45 p.m. and Friday 9:00 a.m.–4:45 p.m. The test can take up to an hour to complete, so you should arrive at least an hour before the lab closes. Bring your referral form with your EdReady/NC-DAP scores.
If you test out of your subject, you will skip to Step 3. An instructor will document your test results on a blue form and give it to you so you can return to Student Services to register for college classes!
The regular hours of operation for the DOTS office are 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m., Monday–Friday (closed on Saturday and Sunday).
If you would like more information, please complete a Student Interest Form.
You may also call (828) 398-7433, email AdultEd@abtech.edu, or stop by the Department of Transitional Studies Office on the third floor of the Hemlock Building (#20 on our campus map).
