    Absolutely i did it and I have no status yet;probably you won't qualify for student aid but sure thing you can do it.You must have a GED diploma,I had the compass test several months ago and I did pretty good on writing and reading but math,my advice is not to hurry up because whenever you answer wrong a question next one will be easier but they'll give you less score;so rock on!!!

                      No I did not. I just applied and presented my work authorization permit as ID. I was given no fuss at all!
