Prepare to take a high school equivalency test and earn a California High School Equivalency Certificate. Two test options are available: the GED and HiSET. Both tests are authorized by the California Department of Education. Adult Education classes are free; however, a fee is charged to take the GED and HiSET tests.
Register to take the HiSET Test
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 GED or HiSET tests in the same language, and the tests cannot be mixed and matched.
