This article lists all GED prep facilities and testing sites in the Elizabeth, New Jersey, region. New Jersey uses two alternatives for high school equivalency testing, the HiSET and GED exams.
The GED and HiSET assessments can be taken online and at state-approved testing sites. The TASC assessment was discontinued.
The exams assess proficiency at a level that equals that of graduating HS students.
In New Jersey, both options must be taken on a computer, no longer is paper-based testing possible.
The GED® has four individual tests in Literacy, Social Studies, Math, and Science that can be completed separately.
The HiSET® exam comes with five subtests as their literacy part has separate writing and reading tests. These tests can be taken individually as well.
The New Jersey high school equivalency (HSE) credential is accepted just like a regular high school diploma by educational institutions and employers.
In the past, online HiSET and GED testing was not possible. This has now changed, however, with the introduction of both an online HiSET option and an online GED exam. Read more below.

Launching GED and HiSET online options
Taking the GED or HiSET exam over the internet was, until just recently, no option. You had to come personally to one of New Jersey’s state-designated HSE testing sites and take the tests there. Now, all of this has changed with the introduction of online HiSET and GED test-taking options.
To read more about the HiSET-At-Home exam via the internet, visit ‘Launching the online HiSET exam,’ and if you want to read more about the recently launched online proctored GED exam, go to this post: ‘Introducing the online GED test.’
