Access your MyABAC account by using the MyABAC Link.  This will allow you to access your Stallion Email, BannerWeb, D2L, eStallion, and submit documents for Admissions and Financial Aid.  

 

Complete the Financial Authorization Agreement within ABAC-Banner. For students under 18, parents will be required to submit the Parent Financial Authorization Agreement

  • After clicking the link, you will be prompted to sign in or create a Dynamic Forms account. If you do not have an account, create a new account.
  • After account creation, you will receive an email from notify@ngwebsolutions.com to activate your Dynamic Forms account. You will receive on-screen confirmation “Account Activated! Congratulation, you have successfully activated your account” once it’s activated.

If you have trouble with the account you created, please contact Dynamic Forms Tech Support — ABAC Tech Support does not have access to these accounts.  

 

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

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

  • By mail – 2802 Moore Highway, ABAC 42 Tifton, GA 31793.

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, contact the Office of Student Development to discuss disability services.

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.  To begin the process, please complete the Voluntary Declaration of Disability.

 

Submit any Out of State Tuition Waiver Documents.  Documents for waivers can be submitted through the ABAC – Submit Admission Document App via MyABAC.  For more information, see Submit Documents to Processing Admission and Financial Aid.

*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 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 second deadline will receive a hold that prevents class registration for future semesters.
