High School Equivalency Testing

The specific purpose of the High School Equivalency Test is to measure the educational development of adults who have not completed their formal high school education. Adults may earn a High School Equivalency Certificate and thus qualify for admission to colleges or other educational institutions, meet educational requirements for employment or promotion, satisfy educational qualifications for induction into armed services, fulfill requirements of local state licensing boards, or gain personal satisfaction.


  • 17 years of age or older
  • Is not a high school graduate or GED graduate*

NOTE: If an individual is of school age and has been enrolled in a public, private, or a home school setting in the last 12 months, they must present a withdrawal letter from the last school enrolled before taking the test.
