This is an overview of GED® (HiSET in Iowa) prep class locations and test centers in the Burlington region. Iowa uses the HiSET® exam for the state’s HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.
The HSE program offers adults who quit high school too early the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The HiSET is available in paper-based and computerized formats, while the GED must be done entirely on a computer.
The HiSET measures knowledge at a level similar to what students have learned in four years of high school.
The HiSET exam includes five subject tests in the academic fields of math, science, language writing, language reading, and social studies.
Online HiSET or GED testing is not available. Test-takers must come to a state-approved testing site.

Who Can Take The HiSET Exam?
The High School Equivalency Testing Program is for people who did not finish high school and want to obtain a similar diploma. The certificate that you will be awarded when you complete the Iowa HiSET exam is nationally recognized and accepted as equivalent to a normal high school diploma by state and federal authorities, employers, and academic institutions. So why don’t you try to reach your ideals by taking on the new HiSET exam? Check out GED (HiSET) testing in IOWA for qualification requirements.
If you come across a website that tells you that the HiSET or GED exam can be done online, you can be sure this is fraudulent. Online-obtained documents have no worth whatsoever and will for sure not be accepted by schools or employers. Please don’t waste your money. Check also the totally free practice tests and video for your GED/HiSET test that are available on this website.
Like the GED test, the HiSET is NOT offered over the Internet. You must appear in person at one of Iowa’s official testing centers to take the HiSET exam. The five HiSET tests can be taken individually.
Preparation Is Crucial
Prepare well so you can succeed on your test day. The HiSET system is very flexible. The exam can be taken in various formats and languages. The HiSET is offered both in a computer format and in a paper-based version.
The HiSET exam is less expensive than the GED exam, and when you purchase all five tests you will have two retests at no charge. If you pass the HiSET exam, you will be the owner of the state-issued HSE credential that allows you to boost your career or continue your academic education in college or university.
