GED Classes Chattanooga, Tennessee

This post lists all GED® (HiSET® in Tennessee) prep facilities and testing sites in the Chattanooga region. The HiSET offers adults without a high school degree the chance to acquire an equivalent diploma.

HiSET testing is available online and at official Tennessee test centers.

The HiSET is offered on-paper and on-computer testing while the GED is offered exclusively on a computer.

The HiSET has five modular subtests in the academic subject fields of Literacy Writing, Literacy Reading, Science, Social Studies, and Math.

HiSET testing, like with the GED, takes place at a level that compares to that of graduating HS seniors.

There was, until recently, no online HiSET testing option. You had to come to an official HiSET testing site to sit for the exam in person.

This has changed now, however, with the launch of an online proctored HiSET exam. Learn more at the bottom of this page.
