May 7th, 2012 will be the last day students will be able to apply for ATB testing. Please call and schedule an appointment before this date.
ATB testing will be discontinued: Public Law 112-74 amended HEA section 484(d) to eliminate Federal student aid eligibility for students without a “certificate of graduation from a school providing secondary education or the recognized equivalent of such a certificate. ” The law makes an exception for students who have completed a secondary school education in a home school setting that is treated as a home school or private school under State law.
At CBT College we are committed to help you reach your goals with an education even when circumstances have prevented you from obtaining a High School diploma. For this reason, students that do not have a High School Diploma or Equivalent and did not complete secondary school in a home school setting, can still qualify for aid by passing a Department of Education approved “Ability to Benefit” test.
Students who pass this test are able to enroll into any Diploma and/or Associate of Science Degree program as well as CBT’s English as a Second Language program.
The test can be in Spanish or English based on the program of study that the prospect is enrolling to.
Note: Some Certification Exams require that the candidate be a HS/ GED recipient.
