    Students without high school diplomas and are 18 years old can qualify for financial aid if they have a GED, or other high school proficiency certificate or pass the CHSPE (California High School Proficiency Examination).

    Hello Judith,

    Unfortunately, the answer is no. In order for students to receive any financial aid Federal (Pell)  or  State (BOGFW) you must be a high school graduate or have the equivalent of a high school diploma, like a California High School Proficiency Exam (CHSPE) or a General Education Diploma (GED).  Students can still attend college without a high school diploma or passing the CHSPE or GED, but the cost related to attending college would have to be paid out of pocket for all the expenses such as: tuition, books, student fees etc.
