This post lists all GED (HiSET in Maine) prep classes and testing centers in the Lewiston, Maine, region. Maine is using the HiSET for its high school equivalency testing program.
You can sit for the Maine HiSET test in an online format and at certified test centers in many states, but in Maine, online testing is not offered.
The HiSET®, similar to the GED® exam, measures knowledge at a level that’s similar to what high school students must command upon graduation.
There are five HiSET subtests that measure a student’s skills and knowledge of
- English Writing
- English Reading
- Social Studies
The HiSET may, when taken at a test center, be done on a computer or in a paper-and-pencil format, though in Maine, only computer-based testing is available.
So in the past, in many states, testing was exclusively available at state-designated test centers. But recently, an online proctored option was introduced as well. Read more below.
Across America, the diploma that you’ll receive upon successfully passing the HiSET exam is accepted just like a regular HS credential.
Students who complete(d) the HiSET exam or high school in the years 2020-2023 can now enroll in one of Maine’s seven community colleges at NO COST whatsoever for two years. Learn all about this fantastic free college tuition initiative <- on this page.

Introducing the Online HiSET Test
Until recently, HiSET test-taking could not be done online, and this is still the case in Maine. To earn your Maine high school equivalency (HSE) diploma, you were required to show up at one of Maine’s official HiSET testing facilities. In many states, however, that has changed with the arrival of an online HiSET test-taking option called the HiSET-At-Home Exam.
So today, in many states, you can sit for the five HiSET modules (independent subtests) from your own home in an online version. Great, isn’t it? An online proctor oversees everything and checks if you do everything in line with the strict regulations. To learn more, visit ‘Online HiSET Proctored Test.’
