Your Future

The HSE (high school equivalency) program offers adults with no high school diploma the chance to earn a credential that compares to a regular high school degree.

The certificate that is awarded after completing the Tennessee HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) is accepted all over the United States by official institutions, colleges, and employers.

Tennessee made the switch from the GED to the HiSET because the latest edition of the GED exam is completely computer-formatted, whereas the HiSET can be done both on paper and on a computer.

On the HiSET exam, you need to attain at least a score of 8 (out of a possible 20) on all five individual subtests. Your essay must score between 2 and 6, and your overall score must be at least 45 (out of a possible 100), not including your essay.
