The “All-in-One” GED Prep

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

The assessments offer persons who could complete high school the opportunity to obtain an equivalent diploma.

The GED® has four separate tests (modules) in Social Studies, Science, Math, and Literacy that may be completed separately.

The HiSET® has five tests as the section Literacy has individual writing and reading tests. These tests can be taken separately as well.

In New Jersey, the exams are only available in a computer-based form (both options).

We recommend the Online GED Program
from Onsego.

It’s Simple, Fast & Easy.


Online testing was never an option. Test-takers had to report, in person, to an official New Jersey test center.

Recently, that has all changed, though, with the launch of both HiSET and GED testing options. Read more below.

Introducing GED or HiSET online testing options

Until recently, taking the HiSET or GED exam over the internet was never an option. The exams were just not available via the internet. Well, that has changed with the introduction of both an online HiSET option and a new online GED testing option.

To read all about the new online HiSET-Exam-At-Home, visit this page: ‘Welcoming the online HiSET test,’ and if you want to read more about the new online proctored GED exam, check out this page: ‘Introducing the online GED test.’
