If you were unable to select an academic program, a red error message will display and explain the reason why. In most cases, you’ll need to see a College Entry Advisor in the Bailey Building for further assistance. College Entry Advisors are available on a walk-in basis, or you can make an appointment by emailing generaladvising@abtech.edu
