  • Complete the Financial Agreement Authorization, which is located within ABAC-Banner App via MyABAC.  Once logged into ABAC-Banner, please click the Student Financial Services tab and access the FINANCIAL AGREEMENT AUTHORIZATION.

 

  • Reserve your spot by completing the FAFSA or submitting the $250 tuition deposit.  (excludes Dual Enrollment and Transient Students)

To submit your deposit, you may pay by mail, phone, or in person:

  • Submit the Freshman Residency Requirement through the ABAC – Housing Portal via MyABAC.  All students must complete either the Housing Application ($235.00 application fee required) or the Housing Waiver. 

 

2) Actions to Complete After Orientation/Prior to First Day of Class

 

  • Submit remaining Admissions Documents.  Check your Stallion status on the ABAC – Banner App via MyABAC to ensure that the Office of Enrollment Services has everything to finalize your admittance.  A complete list of Admissions paperwork can be found on the Requirements Webpage.

*If you have been classified as an out-of-state resident for tuition classification purposes but believe this designation is incorrect, please review the residency policy and complete the Application for In State Tuition.

 

  • Submit remaining Financial Aid Documents.  Check your Stallion status on the ABAC – Banner App via MyABAC to ensure that the Office of Financial Aid has everything to finalize your financial aid status or award.

 

  • Complete the Orientation Survey.  The Orientation Survey will be sent to you after you attend orientation.

 

  • Set up Disability Accommodations (as needed).  Obtaining special accommodations in college is different than it is in high school.  If you had an IEP or 504 plan in k-12, or if you’re interested in learning more about the conditions that qualify for accommodations, please contact the Office of Student Development to discuss disability services. Please be advised that the intake process takes time, so it’s important to schedule an appointment before the start of term to ensure your accommodations are in place when classes begin.

 

  • Complete Part One of Haven and AlcoholEdu.

As part our comprehensive education program, ABAC requires every newly admitted student to complete Haven and AlcoholEdu. These two online courses will empower you to make well-informed decisions about issues that affect your college years and beyond.

What Is Haven?
Haven is a confidential course on healthy relationships, sexual violence, stalking, and relationship violence to help you understand sexual assault and learn about consent.

What Is AlcoholEdu?
AlcoholEdu is a confidential, science-based course that will empower you to make well-informed decisions about alcohol, prepare you to respond to risky situations, and help you reach your personal and academic goals.

IMPORTANT:  Each course is divided into two parts, so you must complete four parts total to satisfy the requirement. Students who do not complete all four sections by the 2nd deadline will receive a hold that prevents class registration for future semesters.
