Be Our Guest

Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College welcomes students at other institutions or those interested in taking a course for personal enrichment to be our guest.  Because of our top-notch faculty and staff, beautiful facilities, online courses, flexible scheduling, and comprehensive academic and student support, you may just find a reason to stay and complete a degree, diploma or certificate with us.

If you are enrolled somewhere else, there is no better place than A-B Tech to pick up a few transferable credits at a low cost through online, hybrid or regular summer courses.

And you meet BOTH of the following conditions:
