Please note that the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2012 (Public Law 112-74) was signed into law which eliminates the Ability to Benefit (ATB) Program. This change became effective on July 1, 2012 and means that students will need a high school diploma or equivalent (e.g. GED), or will need to meet specific home school requirements in order to qualify for Title IV student aid.Page created on 10/23/12Page revised 10/6/14
