Admission to the Culinary Arts, Baking and Pastry Arts, and Hospitality Programs

Who can Enter?

Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College has an open door admissions policy. High school graduation or equivalent is normally required for admission to any curriculum.  If a student is in need of financial assistance, they should contact the Financial Aid Office. A-B Tech is committed to the philosophy that no eligible student should be denied access to higher education because of a lack of financial resources.
