This page lists all GED® prep locations and testing sites in the Altus area. Oklahoma uses the fully computerized GED exam for its HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.
The state also embraced the HiSET® exam for this purpose which is available in both paper-based and computerized versions.
HiSET and GED testing can be done both online and at certified HSE test centers.
The HSE program gives individuals who quit high school prematurely the opportunity to acquire an equivalent degree.
The GED exam has four independent subtests in the fields of Math, Science, Literacy, and Social Studies.
You can take one of these subtests (modules) at a time. There’s no need to take it all in one session.
The HiSET exam includes five subject tests (Literacy has individual writing and reading tests) that can be done separately as well.
In earlier days, you could never sit for the HSE exam in an online format. Now, fortunately, that has changed with the arrival of online proctored GED and HiSET testing options. For more information, check below.

Besides the GED, Oklahoma also introduced an alternative, the HiSET exam. This option is slightly cheaper than the GED and is offered both on paper and on a computer. The GED passing score for each of the four separate modules is 145. The HiSET is scored differently.
In the United States, we still can find some forty million adults who never finished high school, and successful completion of the GED test will definitely result in a better future. Every year, over 500,000 adults pass the GED tests and you could do the same.
People with a GED credential make around $9,600 more per year than those who do not have a secondary education degree. So you see, it really pays off to spend time getting ready for the GED exam! It’s not only about the financial rewards, though. Having a rewarding career will also boost your self-esteem and having a brighter future is what it’s all about, wouldn’t you agree?
New online GED and HiSET tests
It used to be that students looking to earn their Oklahoma HSE (high school equivalency) diploma always had to appear, in-person, at one of the state’s official HSE testing sites. Online testing was simply never offered. But now, we’ve seen the introduction of both HiSET and GED online proctored test-taking options.
