How do I apply for the program?
Applicants must complete the AB Tech application for admission at www.abtech.edu
What must I do to qualify for admission?
Applicants must be high school graduates or have passed the GED. The program instructor must receive an official copy of the high school transcript or GED before the applicant will be considered for the program. Applicants are eligible for admission if the Accuplacer Reading score is 80 or higher. Credit for RED 090 or ENG 111 may substitute for this requirement.
How do I register for PBT 100 and PBT 101?
Applications for spring and fall semesters will be accepted in Bailey Student Services on a first come, first served basis, on or after the first school day in April for the fall semester and the first school day in September for the spring semester. A maximum of 16 seats are available each semester and an alternate list will be maintained for each semester once the first 16 seats have been filled. Applicants will be placed on the waiting list according to the date they complete a Placement Information (PI) form with an advisor. Waiting lists are not carried over to the next class and you must reapply each semester during the admissions process.
Registration and Admissions coordinates this process and you can call them at Bailey Student Service Center 828-254-1921 ext 7520 for more details. After you obtain a seat you will be given an acceptance letter with more detailed information. The acceptance letter will also list 2 advising session options where you can come to get registered by the Phlebotomy faculty advisors.
What are the corequisite courses?
PSY 118 Interpersonal Psychology credit is required in the PBT program. This can be taken before or at the same time as the PBT courses. The PBT instructor can register you for this PSY class at the same time as the PBT courses.
What are the program costs and what about financial aid?
It costs approximately $1,100-$1,200 for tuition, books, uniforms, CPR class, medical exam , immunizations, etc. Costs may vary depending on if you need the PSY class and/or extra immunizations. Due to the length of the program, the phlebotomy certificate is not eligible for financial aid. Tuition cost can be divided into 3 payments over the time frame of the semester.
*The college refund policy applies if a student drops the program after being denied clinical site privileges.
What are the PBT class, lab and clinic schedules?
We meet 2.5 hours a week for lecture 9am-11:20am (fall M/F, spring M/W), 1 afternoon for lab (either Mon 3pm-4:50pm OR Tues 3pm-4:50pm), and you have 9 hours of clinic per week on Tuesdays or Thursdays or both (two half days on Tu/Thurs or one long day Tu OR Thurs).
