High School Equivalency Testing (HiSET and GED)

You have two choices for testing to earn your high school credential: the GED and the HiSET. The tests are similar, but they do have some differences, so you are encouraged to visit the websites to see which test you are more comfortable with. 

Please visit HiSET and GED for scheduling and for more information about the tests.

Classes will prepare you for either test.
