GED Classes Baton Rouge, Louisiana

This page is listing all GED® (in Louisiana: HiSET®) prep classes and testing sites in the Baton Rouge region. Louisiana uses the HiSET exam for the state’s High School Equivalency (HSE) testing program.

HSE testing offers persons who quit high school prematurely another opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.

The HiSET exam includes five tests in the fields of science, writing, reading, social studies, and math.

The HiSET exam is available both on paper and in a computer-based format.

In the past, online HiSET testing was not possible. Applicants needed to show up at an official Louisiana testing site.

Now, with the introduction of an online HiSET testing option, that has all changed that. Read more below.

The GED diploma is accepted by virtually all employers, government organizations, and educational institutions.

Introducing a new online HiSET testing option

Until recently, the HiSET exam was not available over the internet. If you wanted to secure your Louisiana high school equivalency (HSE) diploma, your personal appearance at one of the state’s official testing facilities was required. Now, this has all changed with the arrival of a new, online, proctored HiSET testing option named HiSET-Exam-At-Home.

So now, you can sit for the five HiSET modules (one at a time if you wish) from your home using a new online testing format where a proctor sees if you do everything in accordance with the regulations. Check out ‘Introducing an online HiSET testing option’ to learn more.
