Listed here are all GED® prep class locations and testing facilities in the Gulfport region. Mississippi offers two options for high school equivalency (HSE) testing, the GED and HiSET®.
The GED and HiSET are offered both online and at certified Mississippi testing facilities.
HSE testing gives adults that left high school without a diploma another chance to acquire an equivalent degree.
The HSE exam assesses basic knowledge at a level similar to that of high school grads.
The GED has four individual tests in the academic fields of Math, Literacy, Social Studies, and Science.
You can prepare for and take one (or more) of the GED subtests at a time.
The HiSET has individual reading and writing tests, so five in total that can also be taken separately.
The GED exam must be taken on a computer while the HiSET is offered both on-paper and on-computer.
Online HiSET or GED testing was, until recently, not an option. Applicants had to come to an official HSE testing center. Recently, however, we’ve witnessed the arrival of both a GED and a HiSET testing option via the internet. Read more below.

Introducing GED and HiSET online testing options
It used to be that there was no online GED or HiSET test-taking option. You were always required to show up, in person, at one of Mississippi’s official HSE test locations. Well, recently, that has all changed.
Now, GED and HiSET testing additionally became available online. To learn all about these interesting developments, check out these pages: for online HiSET testing go to only HiSET testing welcomed, and for online GED testing check out: online GED testing introduced.
