This page lists all GED and HiSET prep classes and test centers in the South Bend region. In Indiana, you must pass the GED or HiSET exam to secure your high school equivalency (HSE) diploma.
The GED® and HiSET® exams offer people who didn’t finish high school a second chance to acquire an equivalent credential in the same way as the GED exam.
The diploma that you’ll receive upon passing the four GED or five HiSET subject tests is accepted just like a high school diploma by virtually all U.S. employers and colleges.
HiSET testing involves five subtests in
- English Writing
- English Reading
- Social Studies
The GED has combined English reading and English writing into one Language Arts subtest, so the exam has four separate sub-exams.
HiSET testing can be done on paper or on a computer, whereas the GED is entirely computer-based. Online HiSET and GED testing is now also an option for qualifying students.
