GED Classes New Orleans, Louisiana

This post lists all GED (in Louisiana: HiSET) prep class locations and testing sites in the New Orleans area. The HiSET is for adults who could not finish high school, and this way, they can earn an equivalent credential.

Testing occurs at a level that is similar to that of graduating high school seniors.

The “All-in-One” GED Prep

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

There are five HiSET subtests in the subject areas of writing, reading, social studies, math, and science.

The HiSET is available in both a paper-and-pencil and a computerized format.

Online HiSET® or GED® testing was, until recently, not an option. The exam was exclusively administered at official HiSET testing centers but the recent arrival of an online HiSET testing option has changed that. Check below for more details.

All across America, the GED diploma is accepted in the same way as a standard high school diploma.

Online HiSET testing option

Until recently, the HiSET test, like the GED, was never available via the internet. To acquire a Louisiana HSE (high school equivalency) degree, your personal appearance at one of Louisiana’s official HiSET testing sites was a requirement. Now, however, that has changed with the introduction of a new online HiSET test-taking option named the HiSET-At-Home Exam.

If you decide to take the five HiSET modules (one at a time is possible) online from your home, a  proctor will oversee the entire process and check whether it all occurs in line with the regulations. For more detailed information, check out ‘Online HiSET Test.’
