High School Equivalency

Take a High School Equivalency Test

Prepare to finish your high school education through one of North Carolina’s High School Equivalency (HSE) Diploma programs.

The program offers instruction on core subjects like Reading, Science, and Mathematics, preparing you to successfully pass a designated assessment and obtain your HSE degree.

The two nationally-recognized assessments used to obtain a state-issued High School Equivalency credential in North Carolina are GED® and HiSET®. Both High School Equivalency assessments are recognized by the US Department of Education USDOE GEN-14-06 and cover the same content areas. Passing the complete battery of either of the assessments will lead to the same High School Equivalency Diploma issued by the North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges.

Please note that both high school equivalency testing options many not be available at all providers and that some restrictions may apply.
