Whether you want to pursue a career or attend college, earning a high school equivalency credential is more important than ever. Now there is an affordable alternative to the GED® test that offers you more choices — the HiSET® exam from ETS.

The HiSET exam provides important advantages that give you the best chance to succeed on test day.

More flexible. The HiSET exam can be taken in multiple formats and multiple languages, and it provides a number of accommodations for test takers with disabilities and health-related needs. See Requirements by State for available formats at your local test center.

More accessible. You'll have more test center options, so you can choose the one that's most convenient for you.

More affordable. Not only does the HiSET exam cost less than the GED® test, but you get more for your money — two free retakes when you purchase a battery (all five subtests).

Once you pass the HiSET exam, you'll have the valuable state-issued credential you need to advance your career or continue your education.
