Inmates who committed their offense on or after September 13, 1994, are subject to the conditions of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act (VCCLEA) or the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA). Inmates without a GED that fall under the conditions of VCCLEA or PLRA must enroll in GED classes and make satisfactory progress in order to earn their maximum amount of Good Conduct Time (GCT). Any inmates in the VCCLEA/PLRA category who refuse GED classes will not earn their maximum amount of GCT. Inmates will receive a GED progress assignment of either GED SAT (for satisfactory progress) or GED UNSAT (for not making satisfactory progress). Inmates who are convicted of a prohibited act in the Literacy program will receive a GED UNSAT progress assignment. Inmates with a GED UNSAT progress assignment must attend 240 classroom hours in good standing before they are eligible to receive a GED SAT progress assignment and begin receiving the maximum amount of GCT.

To enroll in one of these programs, an application can be obtained from the VT Coordinator and your Unit Team will approve enrollment. If the program is full, your name will be placed on a waiting list. You will be placed on call-out to find out if you are still interested when there is a vacancy in the program.
After you are enrolled in the program, you have until the third class day to decide if you would like to remain in the program. When the third class day ends, you will be required to remain in the program until completion. After you complete your training in the VT program, you will be assigned to a detail so that you can continue your experience in that field.
