Listed in this article are GED preparatory class sites and testing facilities in the Morristown area. New Jersey offers two options to people looking to earn their High School Equivalency degree, the GED and HiSET assessments.
Both the HiSET and GED exams are available at certified test centers and in an online format. The TASC exam was discontinued.
The high school equivalency (HSE) program is for adults who did not complete high school and gives them another chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The GED® (General Education Development) has four separate subtests (modules) in literacy, social studies, math, and science.
You don’t need to complete the four GED modules in one take. You can take one subtest (or more if you want) at a time.
The HiSET® has split up the Literacy part into separate writing and reading tests, so five in total, that can also be taken separately.
New Jersey was the first state where both tests could be only be taken on a computer. Paper-and-pencil testing belongs to the past except for applicants who need accommodations.
In the past, there was never an option to take the HiSET or GED online, but recently, we’ve seen the introduction of online GED and HiSET testing options. Check the bottom of this post for more details.

Introducing online GED and HiSET tests
Taking the HiSET or GED exam over the internet was, until very recently, not an option. You were required to appear, in person, at one of New Jersey’s official HSE testing facilities. But now, this has changed with the launch of online proctored HiSET and GED test-taking options.
To learn all about this new online HiSET-At-Home testing option, visit this post: ‘Welcoming the online HiSET test,’ and for detailed information about the newly launched online proctored GED test, check out ‘Launching the online GED testing option.’

In New Jersey, the equivalency exam is open to adults without a secondary education credential of 18 years old and older. However, 16 and 17 years olds qualify if they submit a completed “Certificate of Consent to Participate” form that verifies they’re not enrolled in high school, have permission from the school districts to take the assessment, and come with a parent or guardian to the testing center to submit the completed Certificate of Consent.
Underage applicants who have legal guardians must bring copies of court documentation that awards guardianship. They also need to submit written confirmation that they are eligible to take the exam.
In New Jersey, testers are required to prove that they are state residents. There’s no need to first sign up for a preparatory course prior to taking the assessment though that is highly recommended as the Equivalency Tests are very challenging exams. They also don’t need to first attain satisfactory results on a practice test.
