INDIANA HIGH SCHOOL EQUIVALENCY TEST
Indiana offers adults the opportunity to earn a state accredited High School Equivalency Diploma by successfully passing the HiSET (High School Equivalency Test). Indiana switched from the TASC test to the HiSET in September 2021. The HiSET is similar to the GED in that applicants must meet a minimum score on five different subject sections including Math, Language Arts, Reading, Science, and Social Studies.

Pre-registration is necessary and testing must be scheduled 24 hours in advance. All testing is at Northview Middle School.
What is the HiSET?
The HiSET is a test that gives adults the opportunity to achieve their high school diploma. The High School Equivalency (HSE) Diploma is now earned by taking the HiSET and not the GED or TASC. For specific information about the HiSET, check out "HiSET Test at a Glance." Indiana switched from the GED to the TASC in 2014, and switched to the HiSET in 2021.
Who can take the HiSET?
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. 16 and 17 year olds will need a completed exit form with a superintendent's signature. An exit form is different from a withdrawal form that a high school usually provides.
