The Indiana High School Equivalency Diploma

Indiana offers adults the opportunity to earn a state accredited High School Equivalency Diploma by successfully passing the HiSET (High School Equivalency Test).  The HiSET exam is similar to the GED exam in that applicants must meet a minimum score on five different subject sections including Math, Language Arts, Reading, Science, and Social Studies. 


About the HiSET


What is the HiSET?

The HiSET test gives adults the opportunity to achieve their high school diploma.The High School Equivalency (HSE) Diploma is now earned by taking the HiSET test and not the GED.  Indiana switched from the GED test to the TASC test in 2014, and swithced to the HiSET in 2021.

Anyone who is at least 16 years of age; has lived in Indiana for 30 days; and is not currently enrolled in or graduated from an accredited high school can take the HiSET. 

How do I sign up for the HiSET?

We recommend that you first enroll in WTAE courses to help prepare you to take the HiSET. WTAE will also pay the cost of your HiSET test when you sign up for a course to prepare you for the HiSET.


If you do not wish to enroll in WTAE classes, you can sign up to take the HiSET test by calling us. The test is offered two times a month at our main office at Northview Middle School.
