Inmates can and do get their college education during their incarceration. For inmates in a county jail, your inmate would have to speak with a counselor and ask what they will approve first. Depending on the length of the sentence, the staff will likely assist in proxying the exams and certifying the test results. If they get the blessing of the facility (usually they LOVE the fact that an inmate would take the initiative to improve themselves) there would have to be an outside person who would pay for the courses. Louisiana State University (LSU) has a very comprehensive distance learning curriculum where many inmates in federal prison enroll.
