Who Can Take a High School Equivalency Exam?

High school equivalency (HSE/GED) exams are designed for out-of-school youth and adults without a high school diploma.

HSE/ GED exams have eligibility requirements. Like taking a driving test, you must meet these eligibility requirements before you can test. Requirements are determined by each state and usually involve:

Age: Most states have a minimum age for the test, but many also have exceptions.
School Enrollment Status: Most states require that you be officially withdrawn from school or involved in an Option, Youth Challenge, Job Corps® or other similar program to take a high school equivalency exam.

Residency: Some states require that you live in the state to take the exam there.
Practice Test or Instruction: Many states require adult education instruction before you take the exam.

Identification: A photo ID is needed to verify your identity and age on test day before testing can begin.

Where is a High School Equivalency Credential Accepted?

A portable credential
Everywhere! A high school equivalency (HSE/GED) credential is issued by the state, not by the test provider. Just as one state will honor another state’s high school diploma, they will also honor another state’s HSE/GED credential. No matter where you take it or which test you take, your HSE/GED credential will be accepted. This is what “portable” means.

Is the HiSET/GED exam recognized by federal programs?

Yes. The HiSET /GED program has worked with government agencies to make sure HiSET/GED test takers can use the credentials they earn to meet federal education requirements, such as qualifying for federal student aid in the form of grants, loans and work-study funds or demonstrating HSE/GED for government programs or groups.

This includes:

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®)
U.S. Military
U.S. Department of Labor Job Corps Program
