Individuals are eligible for admission to Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College if they have graduated from high school or have passed the General Education Development Test (GED).

Ability to Benefit
The Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2015 amended the Higher Education Act of 1965 to partially restore what is known as the “ability to benefit (ATB) alternatives.” The law went into effect December 16, 2014, and allows for a student who did not receive a high school diploma or its equivalent, or who did not complete a secondary school education in a homeschool setting, to be eligible for Title IV financial aid meeting a combination of ATB alternatives and enrollment in an eligible career pathways program.

Eligible Career Pathways Program
Any Title IV Higher Education Act eligible program offered at a postsecondary institution in which a student is enrolled in the postsecondary program to earn at least one recognized postsecondary credential and participates in an adult education component that enables the student to attain a high school diploma or its recognized equivalent. The career pathways program must include: accelerated programming that is aligned to a specific occupation or occupation clusters; a counseling and supportive service component; alignment with the education and skill needs of the state or regional economy; and the ability to prepare students to be successful in any of a full range of secondary or postsecondary education options, including registered apprenticeships.

Lack of English skills should not be a barrier to admission or participation. In order to eliminate barriers, Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College takes appropriate measures to assess each student’s ability to participate and benefit from placement testing and counseling. Based on assessment and counseling, students are then provided with campus services or a referral to community services to be better prepared for successful participation.

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.

My favorite thing about FDLTCC is the people. I’ve met fantastic students, faculty and staff who go above and beyond what I expected.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.
