Online GED and HiSET exams
Taking the HiSET or GED online was, until recently, not possible. It just wasn’t offered online. If you wanted to earn your Illinois High School Equivalency diploma, you had to come to one of the state’s official testing sites.
That has changed, though. The GED and HiSET have now introduced online proctored test versions. For more information, check out these articles: ‘Online proctored GED testing’ and for HiSET information, check out ‘Online proctored HiSET testing.’
