High School Equivalency Assessment (HiSET exam)


The state of Texas has approved three high school equivalency assessments, the GED test, the HiSET exam and the TASC test.  Upon the successful completion of a single provider's exams, the test taker will be issued a State of Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency (TxCHSE).

The test taker chooses which test series to take, and the test language can be either English, Spanish, or a combination. Tests may only be administered by authorized testing centers. Information about each of these assessments can be found by clicking on the links below:
