Nontraditional students who have not received a high school diploma can pursue similar credit through a High School Equivalence Test (HiSET), Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC) or General Equivalency Development (GED) program. These courses allow students to apply for jobs or pursue a college degree that would otherwise require a high school diploma. Learn more about Ohio’s options for high school equivalence testing.

You must complete an application before you schedule a time for GED testing. For students who are 16 or 17 years old, there is a required consent form that must be filled out prior to scheduling. Applicants over the age of 18 must submit a copy of their signed and notarized withdrawal form to the State of Ohio HSE Office, so the application can be approved for testing.
HSE testing covers the four core subject areas: math, science, social studies and language arts. The test is $30 per section ($120 for all four parts), but payment vouchers are available. HSE testing is done online, so participants must have basic computer skills. For questions about test preparation, registration or the voucher system, contact Jen Flinn at (330) 438-2559.
