Listed here are all GED and HiSET prep class locations and testing sites in the LaGrange region. Georgia is using two options for High School Equivalency testing, the GED and HiSET exams.
The GED exam is exclusively offered on a computer, while the HiSET can be taken both on a computer and on paper.
Both the GED® and HiSET® exams are given at state-approved test sites and in online formats.
The assessments give people who never graduated from high school one more shot at securing an equivalent degree.
Testing occurs at a level similar to what students must command upon graduation.
The GED includes 4 subtests in literacy, social studies, math, and science that you can take one (or more) at a time.
The HiSET comes with separate reading and writing subtests, so five overall, that can also be taken separately.
Until recently, online GED or HiSET testing was no option. Test-takers had to appear in person at one of Georgia’s official testing centers.
That has changed, however, with the arrival of a new, online, proctored GED testing option, and since recently, Georgians can also take the HiSET exam, which is also offered at test centers and online. Read more below.
GED or HiSET graduates in Georgia may qualify to receive a $500 worth HOPE Grant. See also the bottom of this page.

Introducing an online GED testing option
Until recently, taking the GED or HiSET exam was only possible at state-approved HSE testing centers. There simply was no online option for taking the GED or HiSET exam. If you were looking to acquire the Georgia GED credential, your personal appearance was required.
But now, with the introduction of an online GED and HiSET testing option, all of that has changed. When you take the online-formatted GED or HiSET exam, an online proctor will help you with the test-taking process and will see if everything is in line with strict regulations.
The Hope Grant
GED or HiSET graduates in Georgia may qualify to receive a $500 worth HOPE GED Grant. They can use this grant for their post-secondary academic education in Georgia.
Georgia’s HOPE GED Grant may be offered to students who acquired their GED (high school equivalency) diploma via the Technical College System of Georgia.
The HOPE GED Grant provides a one-time $500 award that must be used for tuition and books, or towards other educational costs at selected public technical colleges or at selected public and private colleges or universities.
There is no requirement for full-time enrollment, but students need to have used their HOPE GED Grant within two years after they received their GED diploma.
