The school accepts only those who have graduated from High School or have the General Education Development (GED) Certificate.

  1. ABS will give credit for all hours transferred to us from State Board.

  2. ABS does not discriminate on basis of sex, age, race, color, religion, or ethnic origin in admitting students.

  3. ABS does not openly recruit students already attending or admitted to another school offering a similar program of study.

  4. All courses are taught in English. Because Ohio State Board tests only in English, we teach all courses in English.


For All Courses the Applicant Must:

Interview with the Registration Office to:

  1. Determine eligibility and interest.

  2. Show proof of education.

  3. Determine tuition funding.

  4. PELL students must take an aptitude test.


Financial Aid:

Financial aid available for those who qualify through:

  • Personal Loans

  • Great Lakes Higher Education

  • PELL Grant (Pell Grants are awarded in varying amounts depending on the needs of the student)

  • Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation

  • Special Scholarships


In each instance, the student makes an application at the school's Admissions Office. At this time, his/her eligibility is determined. Payment plans can be arranged.
