Welcome to the Business Office

Please take a few moments and read important changes to the AB Tech student uniform policy…


If you are going to be using financial aid to purchase uniforms for the spring 2017 semester, you are advised to come to the Event center on one of these two dates…

Thursday December 8th 2:00pm – 7:00pm

Friday December 9th 8:00am – 12:00pm


Representatives from Reads Uniforms will be on hand to ensure students will have their uniform requirements and correct sizing. AB Tech staff will bill students financial aid onsite for any purchases made. Reads will then do any necessary monogramming and contact the student to pick up their uniform at Reads’ location on Sweeten Creek road. This process will also ensure that students are properly attired the 1st day of class.


This is only for students who are using financial aid; any students paying out of pocket can go directly to Reads Uniforms location at


123 Sweeten Creek Rd Ste D, Asheville (828) 277-6380.
