Program Registration

No application is required for the ABA Online program. *Getting started is as easy as registering yourself for the first course!

*Arkansas, Georgia, and New York students should first review information located on the State Restrictions tab before registering.

Our Course Sequences

The ABA Online program offers two course sequences, one for those seeking certification at the bachelor’s level (courses 5011 through 5015) and a second for those seeking certification at the master’s level (courses 5011 through 5018). Both course sequences are preapproved by the BACB as meeting coursework eligibility requirements for certification under the BACB’s Fourth Edition Task List core curriculum standards.

Schedule of Classes

The ABA Online program offers four terms per year, allowing you to finish your coursework requirements quickly! Terms begin every three months: January, April, July and October, and you may begin the program during any one of those terms. The table on the Course Pricing tab shows the start and end date of each term and registration period.

** To keep our registration fees low, these courses are offered as professional development continuing education courses. However, three additional options exist for students wishing to obtain graduate credit for these courses.

  • Graduate credit option 1: Courses may be taken for transferable graduate credit by paying the university’s current tuition rate at the time of registration.
  • Graduate credit option 2: For up to two years after the course completion date, students may convert courses taken for professional development to graduate credit by paying the difference between the registration fee paid and the Florida Institute of Technology graduate tuition rate at the time of conversion.
  • Graduate credit option 3: These courses may be applied toward Florida Tech’s hybrid M.A. – Professional Behavior Analysis program at no additional charge; 5 credits of the ABA Online program may also be applied toward the extended studies campus in Orlando’s M.S. – ABA. However, you must apply and be offered admission to a graduate program in order to apply these courses toward a degree. No courses in the ABA Online program may be applied toward the Melbourne campus’s M.S. – ABA degree. For more information on the process for transferable master’s credit, call 1-321-674-8382, option 2.

Florida Tech’s ABA Online professional development certificate programs are not online master’s degree programs. However, click here for more information on our *hybrid Master of Arts - Professional Behavior Analysis program, which blends our ABA Online classes with courses at designated sites throughout the U.S. Although our ABA Online courses may be used toward the MA - Professional Behavior Analysis degree, taking courses in our ABA Online BACB-approved course sequence does not guarantee that you will be offered admission to this hybrid MA program.

The BEHP and BEH courses are identical (e.g., BEHP5011 = BEH5011). Thus, students may obtain course credit hours from our BACB-approved course sequence either as (1) professional development nontransferable credit hours, or (2) transferrable graduate credit hours. All students in any one of our online courses, whether registered in that course under a BEHP- or a BEH- designation, are enrolled in the same course sections, complete the same work, and are graded exactly the same as all other students in that course, whether or not they are earning transferrable graduate credit. Moreover, course instructors and co-instructors cannot readily determine which students are registered under the BEHP- versus the BEH- course designation. The primary distinction between these two groups of students is that those who register for a BEHP- course are not required to apply for admission to our graduate school, while those who register for the same course, but under the BEH- designation, must apply for admission and be admitted to our graduate program.

State Restrictions

Arkansas students: Unfortunately, we are unable to offer the ABA Online program to residents of Arkansas.


Georgia students: The ABA Online program is open to you. However, the hybrid M.A. – Professional Behavior Analysis program is not available to those living or working in Georgia.


New York students:

While we strive to make the ABA Online program accessible to students all around the globe, we realize that behavior analysis students must also adhere to any licensing regulations, restrictions, and applicable laws in the state or region in which they work. We want to make sure you are fully informed about any obstacles you might encounter on your journey to become certified in behavior analysis.

Although the ABA Online program is approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board® as a verified course sequence, the program is not pre-approved by the state of New York for licensure as a behavior analyst or assistant behavior analyst. Applicants for licensure as a licensed behavior analyst prior to September 1, 2019, may still use coursework from programs not registered in the state of New York, but which meet the criteria established in subdivision (c) of Subpart 79-17.1 of Article 167 of Title VIII of New York’s Education Law in their application for admission to the licensing examination. Those who apply for admission to the licensing examination on or after September 1, 2019, will be required to meet the professional education requirements for admission to the licensing examination set forth in subdivision (b) of Subpart 79-17.1 of Article 167 of Title VIII of New York’s Education Law.

It is the responsibility of all students to keep up on the requirements of the state you want to work in. We work hard to let you know of any obstacles we find out about, but it is your ultimate responsibility to keep up on changes in your state. It is imperative that ABA Online students planning to work as behavior analysts or assistant behavior analysts in the state of New York manage their coursework and any other application requirements in such a way that they will be able to apply for admission to the licensing examination prior to September 1, 2019, and that they familiarize themselves with the regulation of the practice of behavior analysis set by the New York State Department of Education, Office of the Professions. If you have any questions about New York’s licensure regulations, please contact the State of New York Department of Education, Office of the Professions, at ababd@nysed.gov or by calling (518) 474-3817, extension 150.
