Please join us for a webinar on the Ability to Benefit (ATB) provisions of the Higher Education Act (34 CFR §668.141-668.156). This topic will be of interest to adult education, career and technical education, workforce development, and postsecondary practitioners and advocates, including those working with Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act and Perkins V programs.
Fulfilling one of the ATB alternatives allows a student without a high school diploma or its equivalent to receive Title IV federal student aid (e.g., a Pell Grant or Direct Loan) to pay for postsecondary education if the student is enrolled in an eligible career pathway program. This webinar will deepen your understanding of the potential of ATB by explaining what it is, the history behind it, examples of its current use at a community college and in a state community college system, and how you could start the conversation at your college or in your state to expand or institutionalize ATB use.
