Listed in this article are all GED testing centers and prep class locations in the High Point region. North Carolina administers the computerized GED for its high school equivalency program, but there is more.
The state also welcomed the HiSET alternative, which is offered both on-paper and on-computer.
The HiSET and GED tests can be taken both online and at certified test centers. To learn all about online GED® and HiSET® testing, check the bottom of this page.
Both assessments measure proficiency at a level that compares to what high school seniors are expected to command upon graduation.
The GED has four separate subtests that may be completed one test at a time. The tests are in Science, Literacy, Social Studies, and Math.
The HiSET has five subtests that are also modular. The Literacy section has separate writing and reading tests.
The HiSET exam is available in both a paper-based and a computerized version, whereas the GED must be done entirely on a computer.

The online HiSET and GED test options
Until recently, online HiSET or GED testing was not possible. If you wished to secure your North Carolina high school equivalency degree, you had to come, in person, to a state-designated testing site.
Now, with the arrival of online proctored GED and HiSET testing, that has all changed. If you want to learn more about the online GED test-taking option, visit this article: Introducing the online GED test, and if you want to read more about online HiSET testing, check out Introducing the online HiSET exam.
