Real Talk With Admissions

In response to social distancing and other preventive health strategies related to COVID-19, American Baptist College has been working to ensure that prospective students continue to have access to our admissions process. We’re offering virtual chats with our ABC Admissions team to offer the same information you would have during an on-campus visit, plus addressing our application process, transcripts, FASFAs and more.

Please stayed tune for our upcoming dates and times.

Help is available

The Office of Student Financial Aid at American Baptist College is here to assist you through this process by providing you with information about federal, state, and institutional loans, grants, scholarships, and work study programs. Our office encourages all current or prospective students to explore their financial options at American Baptist College. While it’s true that parents and/or students must assume the primary responsibility of financing a college education, for those, however, who are unable to meet the entire cost and who possess demonstrated need, we encourage them to apply for assistance through the Financial Aid Office. If you have any questions or concerns about financial aid, we encourage you to contact the Financial Aid Office located on the bottom floor of the Flakes Administration Building.
