My son wants to take college classes. Is this possible and can be quality for financial aid?

Start with Ohio University. They do courses by snail mail and are used to having prisoners as students.

Financial aid is extremely difficult. Pell Grants were taken away in 1994. Private sector scholarships are almost impossible to find. There was a pilot program for "second chance Pell Grants" at _some_ facilities in the previous administration. I'd be (pleasantly) shocked if it's still happening now.

You _can_ still file a paper FASFA.
