At the same time introduced theconcept of ABC and its basic principle, the necessity and feasibility of ABC for higher education is analyzed.Then the ABC method of accounting management concept, combined with a university in the eastern coastalcultivating talents flow and the University’s own actual, for the establishment of "the school of universityeducational cost accounting model"; through the data mining technology, mining the model required data from theschool information center core database, completed of the school year2012-2013different categories, differentlevels of student educational cost accounting, and accounting results were compared.
