Registration Dates & Deadlines

When to Register

Fall 2019 registration is now open for all students.

Spring 2020 registration will open for current/returning students on Monday, November 11, 2019 and for new students on Monday, November 18, 2019.

Registration Deadlines

There is no single deadline for registration. A class's registration deadline depends on the class start-date, length, and method of instruction (online, seated, or hybrid).   

For classes 14 weeks or longer, students may add the class up to 48 hours after the start of the first class meeting. For fully online classes that are 14 weeks or longer, students may add the class up to 48 hours after the class’s start date (through the third day of class). 

For classes shorter than 14 weeks, students may add the class until the class meets for the first time. For fully online classes that are shorter than 14 weeks, students may add the class through the end of the start date for the class.

Payment Deadlines

For students who register for fall classes between August 10–16, payment is due Friday, August 16 at 12:00 p.m. (noon). Payment is due at the time of registration if students register for fall classes after August 16.

For students who register for spring 2020 classes by December 13, 2019, payment is due Friday, December 13, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. (noon).

Students must pay in full, set up a payment plan, or have financial aid fully processed and in place to hold their seats in their classes.

For more information on making payments, see the Pay in Full Tutorial or the Tutorial for Setting up a Payment Plan.

Financial Aid

It's NOT too late to apply for financial aid! You can view Financial Aid Dates & Deadlines on our website. Students who apply for financial aid late may need to set up a payment plan at abtech.edu/payment for possible reimbursement.

You can confirm whether you have financial aid in place by going to your WebAdvisor/Self-Service account.

If you are having trouble finding the information you need, try following this step-by-step guide.

Drop and Withdrawal Deadlines
