Abstract: The Milwaukee Area Technical College ABE Contextualized Career Pathway program is an Integrated Education & Training (IET) Program that currently enrolls GED® prep participants in an approved Career Pathway Credit Certificate program where students earn transferable college credits, while currently enrolled in their GED® program. The program is designed as a co-requisite model where ABE courses support student learning in the college level credit courses. This program has implemented the U. S. Department of Education "Ability to Benefit" for GED students to receive federal financial aid to cover tuition cost.
