International Student Admission
Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College (A-B Tech) welcomes students from all countries interested in pursuing a diploma or associate degree in many fields of study. A-B Tech has been approved to issue I-20 forms for qualified international applicants seeking F-1 or M-1 status.
A-B Tech does not offer an Intensive English Language program – English proficiency is required and must be documented by TOEFL scores or an acceptable alternative. International students are not eligible for financial aid and will be required to pay out-of-state tuition rates during enrollment.
International students interested in attending A-B Tech may choose from a wide selection of diploma and associate degree programs. Please review our academic program offerings. If you do not find a program of interest at A-B Tech, please visit Study in the States to find a school that fits your needs.
International students on an F-1 or M-1 student visa must be enrolled full-time. International students must show proof of financial support sufficient to cover out-of-state tuition, fees, books, supplies, living and travel expenses, and incidental costs for a minimum of one year of study. Please review the Cost of Attendance prior to submitting an application.
