The “All-in-One” GED Prep

Get Your Diploma in 2 Months.
It doesn’t matter when you left school.

The HiSET® exam, in the same way as the GED® test, is for adults who never graduated from high school and gives them the chance to earn an equivalent degree.

The HiSET exam includes five subject tests that cover Language Reading, Language Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies.

The exam measures knowledge at a level that’s similar to what HS seniors must command upon graduation,

HiSET testing can be done on paper or in a computer-based model, and the subtests may be taken separately.

Until recently, HiSET testing over the internet was not possible. You had to show up at a state-designated HiSET test center.

Now, however, all of that has changed as an online HiSET test was introduced, the HiSET Exam At Home. Learn more below.

Introducing the HiSET-At-Home test

In the past, taking the HiSET exam via the internet was impossible. You had to appear, in person, at an official Iowa HiSET testing facility when you were looking to acquire your Iowa HSE (high school equivalency) diploma.

Now, this has changed. The introduction of the HiSET-Exam-At-Home has made that you can take the HiSET exam online as well. A proctor checks if all happens in line with some pretty strict regulations. Read all about it here: HiSET-At-Home Onljne Test.
