Under the provisions of Public Law 112-14, CBT College does not accept the ATB if it was taken after July 1, 2012. However, under the provisions of Public Law 112-14 the following may apply for a prospect that took the ATB before July 1, 2012.
A student who attended an eligible program at a Title IV institution prior to July 1, 2012, may establish eligibility at the same Title IV institution or a different Title IV institution using all of the ATB alternatives. So long as the student previously attended an eligible program at an eligible Title IV institution, it does not matter whether the student received Title IV, HEA student assistance prior to July 1, 2012.
As noted above, the change to the law that removes the ATB alternatives applies to students who “first enroll in a program of study on or after July 1, 2012.” Students who are registered prior to July 1, 2012, to attend an eligible program at a Title IV institution may still use the ATB alternatives.
