CVTC's ATB Program

CVTC offers the Ability to Benefit (ATB) program which allows adult learners who do not have a high school diploma or its equivalent (GED/HSED) to obtain financial assistance to earn a college degree or technical diploma while completing their GED or HSED.

CVTC’s ATB Program Requirements:

  • Must be a Wisconsin resident - 18 ½ or older.
  • Do not have a high school credential or did not graduate from an accredited high school.
  • Want to enroll in an eligible CVTC college program and apply for financial aid.
  • Demonstrate college readiness.

There are three options for students to demonstrate college readiness:

  1. Pass the TABE Reading assessment with an NRS score of 5 or better.
  2. Successfully complete six college credits.
  3. Pass the ATB Accuplacer with scores of Reading 233, Writing 235, and Arithmetic 230.
