The HiSET is an equivalency diploma program that replaces the GED program. An equivalency diploma can be earned by passing a five-part exam in the areas of writing, social studies, science, literature and mathematics. A diploma can open the door to further education and improve employment opportunities. A high school diploma is no longer an endpoint for adults, but a springboard for more education, training, and better-paying jobs. The HiSET will continue to provide adults the opportunity to earn a high school credential, but it goes further by measuring career- and college-readiness skills that are the focus of today’s curriculum and tomorrow’s success How Can You Get Started? You must be at least 18 years of age. Testing sessions and test preparation are available during both day and evening hours. Students may enroll at any time during the semester. There is no fee for this program. Accommodations for the HiSET test are available for individuals with a qualifying disability.
