Due to COVID-19, HiSET testing has been put on hold.
To earn a California High School Equivalency Certificate, students must successfully pass all subtests of the HiSET tests. California residents are allowed to combine different language versions to complete the test. This means you may take any test subject in the language of your preference, either English or Spanish, to earn your California high school equivalency certificate.
