I have heard that some institutions will not pursue the ATB option because of the documentation required is time consuming.
Regina Suitt
The checklist that OCTAE put together is a great tool for documentation of a career pathway!

Will this recording and PPT be available later?
Julie Dincau
ATB gives adult learners access to federal aid, however, if a public community college chooses not to enroll learners who do not have a high school diploma or High School Equivalency the college has the right to set that requirement, correct?
Regina Suitt
Colleges should consider full access to their colleges for all students who are eligible to attend.
Regina Suitt
slides and recording will be available a few hours after the symposium today
Aaron Washington
For a student who qualifies to use one of the ATB alternatives through enrollment in an eligible program prior to July 1, 2012, you must document that the student successfully completed one of the approved ATB alternatives. Such documentation could include documentation from NSLDS that shows a student’s prior receipt of Title IV funds, or a transcript or other receipt that demonstrates enrollment in an eligible program.

Great information, Judy, Erin, and Aaron! I'm highlighting key points on Twitter @AmandaWorking, hashtag #AtB
Judy Mortrude
Importantly - even if a state has a state defined process, an institution can continue to use the other ATB alternatives (test, credits).
Judy Mortrude
excellent! Let us know how we can help!

@juliedincau - some states are using the 'equity' lever to encourage institutions to take on people without HSDs
