GED Classes Erie, Pennsylvania

Listed here are all GED or HiSET prep classes and testing sites in the Erie region. Pennsylvania welcomed the computerized GED exam for its HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.

The state additionally embraced the HiSET alternative that’s offered both on a computer and on paper.

Both options can be taken online or at state-approved HSE test centers.

The HSE program offers adults who quit high school prematurely one more chance to get hold of an equivalent degree.

The GED exam contains four separate tests in Literacy, math, social studies. You have the option to deal with the four GED subtests one at a time.

The HiSET comes with five tests (the literacy part has separate writing and reading tests) that can be done separately, too.

It used to be that if you wanted to sit for the GED or HiSET exam, you needed to come, in person, to one of Pennsylvania’s official HSE testing facilities.

This has changed now, however, with the arrival of the online proctored HiSET and GED tests. To learn more, check below at the bottom of this page.

Welcoming online GED and HiSET options

In the past, to sit for the Pennsylvania GED or HiSET exam, you had to go in-person to an official state-designated HSE testing facility. Online testing was never an option. That’s changed, however, with the launch of online proctored HiSET and GED options.

For more information about the newly launched HiSET online test, check out this article: ‘Welcoming the online HiSET exam’ and for information about the new GED online test-taking option, visit ‘Welcoming the online proctored GED exam’.
