This is my first year of filing a FAFSA, but homeschooling friends of mine with older kids told me that students were only given the choice between "diploma" or "GED" on the form, and that absent these you were left doing the back-and-forth dance with the financial aid offices at colleges as to whether you needed to take an Ability to Benefit test or not. I understand that you are not actually required to do it, and all that, but sometimes it took a little re-educating of the finaid staff to help them understand this.
But aside from all that........ this year there seems to be three options: diploma, GED, and homeschool.
Does this now render moot all questions of the ATB tests right off the bat? What is it there for? How does it impact the ATB issue?
