High School Equivalency Testing (HiSET)


The HiSET® exam is one of three tests U.S. states and territories use to measure high school equivalency skills. The General Educational Development (GED®) and the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC™) are the other options. Each state has its own requirements about who can take the HiSET exam.

Be sure to check your state’s requirements before preparing for or scheduling your exam.

Your free initial High School Equivalency Credential and Official Transcript will not be automatically sent to you. You must register with the Diploma Sender website to get this information. You can do this at any time – we recommend doing this right after you schedule your exam.
