ABOUT Funding

By comparing statewide, nationwide, and worldwide college costs, you can better understand the affordability of an ABAC education. For five consecutive years, ABAC has been awarded Best Value School  by University Research and Review. Financial assistance through loans, grants, work-study, and scholarships is available.

The Net Price Calculator Tool (Cost Estimator) is available to assist students with estimating their college costs.  This calculator is intended to provide estimated net price information (defined as estimated cost of attendance – including tuition and required fees, books and supplies, room and board (meals), and other related expenses – minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) to current and prospective students and their families based on what similar students paid in a previous year.

The Office of Student Accounts is essential for assisting students with their financial needs. It helps provide financial services and solutions to help support ABAC students and guide them to success as they become alumni.  The student accounts office is responsible for billing, control and custodianship of institution’s receivables and related records.  It strives to provide accurate and timely financial information courteously and in accordance with departmental, institutional, State and Federal regulations.

Scholarships

Incoming and current students will be considered for all ABAC scholarships by completing the ABAC Foundation Scholarship Application. It is not necessary to apply for individual ABAC scholarships separately. Once all required documentation is submitted, the College will then make selections based on the awards criteria available. Because scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, applicants are strongly encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
