This is a posting of all GED and HiSET prep classes and testing sites in the Billings region. Montana uses both the GED and HiSET exams for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
The assessments give adults who quit high school prematurely the chance to acquire an equivalent degree.
The HiSET® exam includes five sub-exams that measure a candidate’s knowledge in these subjects:
- English Language Reading
- English Language Writing
- Social Studies
The GED Billings MT has four separate sub-exams because the Language Reading and Writing portions were combined into one Language subtest (Reasoning through Language Arts).
All GED® and HiSET Billings MT subtests are individual modules that can be taken in any order and, if you wish, one at a time.
HiSET or GED testing over the Internet was never possible. You needed to appear at an official Montana testing center. Recently, however, we’ve seen the launch of the ‘HiSET-At-Home’ testing option. Read more below.
The Montana HiSET diploma is accepted just like a regular HS diploma by virtually all employers and schools across North America.

Montana HiSET and GED Testing
Montana said goodbye to the GED and used the HiSET for its HSE (High School Equivalency) testing program a few years back. The latest version of the GED exam was only offered in a computerized format, and the price skyrocketed. So Montana, like many other states, decided to opt for another provider of the state’s high school equivalency program.
Now, Montana has decided to offer both the HiSET and GED exams for the purpose of HSE testing. The HiSET is available on paper and on a computer, whereas the GED exam is available in a computerized format only.
The HSE program gives adults a second chance to qualify for higher education and will definitely result in better employment options. In the US, we find millions of people who, for some reason, never completed high school, and Montana’s HSE program is mainly made for them.
