TIFTON—Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC) is waiving all application fees throughout the month as part of ‘No Fee November’. The current Fall semester saw an enrollment increase of nearly four percent from a year ago and President Tracy Brundage said the momentum around the campus is evident.
“There are so many exciting things happening right now at ABAC,” Brundage said. “Waiving the application fee provides another incentive for prospective students to take advantage of our strong value proposition. An ABAC education is a tremendous return on their investment.”
The waiver applies to all applicants, including those from out of state who can attend ABAC and pay in-state tuition. When paired with the college’s already low tuition rates, the “Neighbor Waiver” has drawn plenty of interest according to ABAC’s Director of Enrollment Management Spencer Stewart. Currently, ABAC has students from 151 of Georgia’s 159 counties, 53 of Florida’s 67 counties, 16 states, and 21 countries.
“The interest in ABAC is high because we offer a fantastic product,” Stewart said. “Students love our small class sizes with an 18 to 1 student-to-teacher ratio. Our graduates leave here prepared to step right into a job, or graduate school, or whatever their goal is. And 50 percent of them leave debt-free. There is a lot to be excited about.”
Stewart said he has also gotten great feedback from ABAC’s episode of “The College Tour”, an award-winning TV series which shares ABAC’s story through the eyes of its students. Season Nine of the show debuted on Amazon Prime in October and ABAC is the first college featured in the season.
“What I love about The College Tour is our students tell the story,” Brundage said. “And they did a tremendous job. An educational experience is a highly personal one and by watching the show, you get a sense of why there is so much excitement on campus.”
