HiSET (High School Equivalency Test)

HiSET is a high school equivalency test available as an alternative to GED.  The HiSET exam is available in computer and paper delivered formats in both English and Spanish. 


LANGUAGE OPTIONS

Both English and Spanish are available as language options for the HiSET, however California residents aren't allowed to combine language to complete the test. This means you must take all five subjects in one language to earn your HiSET test credential. You are not allowed to combine Spanish test with English tests. 

OPCIONES DE IDIOMA 

El examen de HiSET está disponible en inglés y español sin embargo, en el estado de California, no se permite combinar versiones de idiomas para completar la prueba. Esto significa  que debe tomar las 5 materias del HiSET en un solo idioma para poder obtener su certificado del HiSET. No se le permitirá combinar exámenes de español con exámenes de inglés o cualquier otra versión de idioma.
