High School Equivalency Testing

Please do not come to campus. All testing is suspended until further notice. When we resume HiSET and GED testing, our schedule will be on the HiSET and GED websites, as usual.

You have two choices for testing to earn your high school credential: the GED and the HiSET. You need to take only one test. Classes will prepare you for either test.
