This article lists all GED® class sites and testing facilities in the Aurora region.
Colorado uses multiple options for High school Equivalency (HSE) testing, the GED, HiSET, and TASC.
The HSE program offers adults who didn’t finish high school the chance to earn an equivalent credential.
All three HSE exam assess basic knowledge at a level that may be expected of HS students upon graduation.
The GED comes with four separate subtests in Literacy (Reasoning through Language Arts), Social Studies, Math (Mathematical Reasoning), and Science.
You can take and pay for one GED subtest (module) at a time, and your scores stand for two years from the time of the first registration.
TASC and HiSET include five tests in Social Studies, Science, Math, Language Writing, and Language Reading, that are available separately, too.
Be aware that there is NO online HSE testing option. Personal appearance at one of Colorado’s designated testing sites is required.

What is the GED?
The GED diploma or certificate that you obtain after completing the Colorado GED exam is regarded as an equivalency to a high school diploma all over the country by government bodies, employers, and colleges. If you never completed high school, finding suitable work in Colorado will be become a lot easier if you have the GED (General Education Development) diploma.
The GED diploma allows for continued education at college and trade/vocational schools and will substantially improve your employment options. Individuals who hold a secondary education credential (H.S. or GED diploma) are expected to make over $9,500 more annually than those who don’t.
Is the GED exam available online?
No, it is not. Despite all revolutionary technological developments in recent times is there no possibility to take the GED, TASC, or HiSET over the internet. You must come to a designated state-approved HSE testing site, and please beware of false internet sites that claim different solutions. They are fraudulent and their ‘diplomas’ are worthless.
Preparation is key
The GED, TASC, and HiSET program leads to a substitute credential for a high school diploma, and if you hold the Colorado HSE diploma, you have demonstrated that you have the ability to think and operate at the level of a graduating high school senior and that you are able to complete essential and basic assignments. All these qualities are valuable for employers and you can also continue your education at college or university.
You can contact one of the locations listed in this post or find online preparation classes where free study material is offered. Either way, preparation is key if you want to succeed in getting your HSE diploma. Over the past decade, more than 10,000 GED diplomas were issued in Colorado, and you see that the credential remains a valuable stepping stone for college education and a great career path. The state now also offers HSE testing through the TASC and HiSET options.
The state of Colorado also approved two nationally available alternatives (the TASC and HiSET exams) to be used for High School Equivalency testing. These tests are available in both a paper-based and computerized format and have five subtests. The Language Arts (Literacy) portion contains separate tests in writing and reading.
Aurora (population 346,000) is Colorado’s third largest city and has a great relaxing atmosphere. It offers fantastic culturally diverse restaurants and lots of outdoor activities. The city has a Cultural Arts Program that offers classes in subjects such as music, dance, fine arts, and pottery, and the Fox Arts Center provides performing arts education.
The Aurora History Museum features interesting exhibits showcasing the city’s history and culture. You can learn everything about the rich Colorado History and the days of the Indian Tribes and the pioneers at the Plains Conservation Center, and in nearby Denver you can visit an interesting museum located in the former site of the Lowry Air Force Base that features various wartime aircraft, many WWII uniforms, and a great collection of aviation art (Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum). The Mizel Museum in Denver offers various exhibitions and programs related to educational purposes and promotes intercultural learning and dialogue in the educational communities.
*) Restoration Outreach Programs
ROP (Restoration Outreach Programs) is a not-for-profit ministry that (among many other activities) organizes HSE preparation classes for residents of the Aurora community. The organization is convinced that a close relationship with the Lord is the answer to a lot of challenges in people’s lives. Restoration Outreach Programs’ instructors are working hard to help applicants find a way towards self-sufficiency and community service through their educational HSE program that will guide students to their HSE diploma if they pass the four GED tests on the academic areas of Math, Science, Social Studies, and Literacy or the five TASC or HiSET subtests
The ministry provides a supportive learning environment for adults who can work one-on-one with an experienced HSE instructor at their own pace. The Colorado HSE credential is regarded as the equivalency of a high school diploma and accepted by practically all colleges, universities, and employers. The organization offers free HSE classes on Mondays through Fridays starting at 1:00 p.m to 3:00 p.m. If you want to know more, or sign up for classes, please feel free to call the ministry at 720-859-2513.
**) Morgan Community College
Morgan Community College’s ABE (Adult Basic Education) classes are a great help to learn basic writing, reading, science, math, and social studies competencies. The school will help you prepare for the 4 tests of the GED exam or the five HiSET or TASC subtests. The HSE (high school equivalency) diploma is seen and accepted just like a standard high school diploma all across the country. HSE prep classes allow you to increase your academic and life skills to get better and decently-paying employment, and the Colorado HSE diploma is also the right ticket for a college or university study.
