In this post, we list all GED (in Maine: HiSET) prep facilities and testing sites in the Augusta, Maine area. Maine makes use of the HiSET for the purpose of high school equivalency testing.
HiSET testing is available at state-approved test centers and online as well in many states but not in Maine.
The Maine HiSET test gives adults who didn’t succeed in graduating high school an extra chance to obtain an equivalent degree.
The HiSET®, like the GED® exam, tests knowledge at a level similar to what high students must command upon graduation.
The exam includes five tests in the subject areas of reading, writing, math, science, and social studies that may be completed on paper or in a computer-based version.
HiSET testing was, until recently, not offered online but that has now changed with the arrival of a new online proctored format called the HiSET-At-Home Exam. learn more below. Be aware, though that online HiSET testing is not available in Maine.
The Maine diploma that’s awarded upon successful completion of the HiSET exam is all across America accepted in lieu of a common high school degree.

Introducing an online HiSET testing option
The HiSET test, like the GED exam, was never offered via the internet. To earn your high school equivalency diploma, your personal appearance at one of the official HiSET testing facilities was needed. However, with the introduction of an online HiSET test-taking option, called the HiSET-At-Home Exam, this has changed, though, in Maine, online testing is not (yet?) available.
So in many states, you may take the HiSET assessment from your own home in an online format. A proctor will then oversee the entire process and check if your online test-taking activities occur in line with the regulations. To learn more, check out: ‘The Online HiSET Test.’
