Pass Your GED Effortlessly
with Onsego

The exams give adults who didn’t graduate high school another shot at earning an equivalent diploma.

Both tests are administered at a level comparable to that of graduating high school seniors.

You can prepare for the exams with a teacher at one of the locations listed on this page, but you can also benefit from a good online GED course, like the accredited program designed by Onsego Online GED Prep, a course that GED Testing Service qualifies as “100% GED test aligned.”

The GED® involves four independent tests in the following academic subjects:

  • Language Arts
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Math

These modules (independent sub-exams) can be written separately and in any order.

The HiSET® exam has individual writing and reading subtests (so 5 overall) that can be taken separately, too.

If you want to read more about Colorado GED and HiSET prices and qualification criteria, go to “GED Testing In Colorado.”

Online GED and HiSET Testing

Today, candidates wishing to earn their Colorado high school equivalency (HSE) diploma can do so online as well. In the past, to earn your GED diploma, you had to appear in an official Colorado test center and sit for the exam in person.

That has changed. Both GED and HiSET tests are now also offered in an online format while using an online proctor. You can read more about these interesting developments here: ‘The online GED test,’ and for the HiSET: ‘The online HiSET test.’
