On this page, you can find all GED® testing facilities and prep class sites in the Edison area. New Jersey offers three options for HSE (high school equivalency) testing, the GED, TASC™, and HiSET®.
HiSET and GED testing is possible both online and at one of New Jersey’s certified test centers.
The HSE program is for adults without a high school diploma and gives them the opportunity to acquire an equivalent degree.
GED testing occurs via four individual tests in Language Arts, Social Studies, Math, and Science.
You don’t have to complete all four GED tests (modules) in one session. The tests are available one at a time.
The TASC and HiSET include five subtests that can also be taken separately. Here, the Literacy section has individual writing and reading tests.
In New Jersey, all three HSE tests (TASC, HiSET, and GED) are administered exclusively on a computer.
In the past online testing was not available. But now, there are also options to take the HiSET and GED exam online. Check the bottom of this page for more information.

Introducing online GED and HiSET testing
In the past, if you wanted to sit for the HiSET, GED, or TASC exam, you had to come to a state-approved New Jersey test facility. Online testing was just not offered. Well, this has now changed with the arrival of the online proctored GED and HiSET tests.
To learn all about the new HiSET-At-Home online exam, visit: ‘Welcoming online HiSET testing’ and for information about the new online proctored GED exam, go to this article: ‘Introducing GED online testing’.
To qualify for taking the GED exam in New Jersey, students need to be at least 16 years of age. 16 or 17-year old test-takers, however, must submit a so-called “Consent to Participate” form and they must also hold written permission from their school districts.
GED applicants cannot be enrolled in any public or private high school and the “Consent to Participate” form needs to be signed by a parent or guardian and submitted to the GED Chief Examiner upon registering for the GED Assessment.
New Jersey does not require GED testers to take any pre GED prep course prior to taking the 4 exams nor are they required to first take the official GED practice test, the “GED-Ready” test.
But since the GED, HiSET, and TASC exams are very rigorous examinations, it is strongly recommended to become optimally prepared.
