Alternative Learning System is a project of the Department of Education through its Bureau of Alternative Learning System. Its aim is to help elementary and high school dropouts or those who have not been able to attend any schooling at all to finish their primary or secondary education through non-traditional ways of schooling. This means after passing the ALS A & E Test, you will be considered a grade school or a high school graduate, depending on the test you took, and will be eligible to apply for college.
The minimum requirements for enrolling in ALS classes are birth certificates and Forms 137 (Applies to people who have attended at least a year of formal schooling). Additional requirements may include a government-issued valid ID and 2 passport size photos with name tag.
