GED Classes Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Last Updated on June 30, 2024.

This post includes an overview of all GED and HiSET classes in the Harrisburg region. Pennsylvania uses the GED and the HiSET for high school equivalency (HSE) testing.

Online GED Classes

A simple and easy way of getting your GED diploma.

Learn fast, stay motivated, and pass your GED  test quickly.

Both tests can be taken online or at state-certified high school equivalency testing facilities.

The GED and HiSET exams offer people who never completed high school one more option for earning an equivalent credential.

The GED has four modular subtests that can be written separately and in any order. The subtests cover

  • English Language Literacy
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Math

The HiSET comes with five tests. The Literacy section includes a reading and a writing test. You can take these subtests separately as well.

The HiSET is offering both on-computer and on-paper testing, whereas the GED is exclusively offered on a computer.

Fast & Easy Online GED Course

Get Your Diploma in 2 Months
It doesn’t matter when you left school

Our platform provides free GED online classes and practice tests, including a wealth of resources from Onsego, to support you on the road to your GED diploma.

If you are fine with this online learning method, we recommend you go on with Onsego’s accredited, affordable GED prep course. If you prefer to study under the guidance of an instructor, get in touch with one of the sites listed on this page.

Until recently, online GED or HiSET testing has never been possible. You were required to show up at an official state-approved Pennsylvania HSE testing site and sit for the tests in person.

Now, this has changed with the launch of online proctored testing options for both HiSET and GED testing. Learn more below.

To learn more about GED testing in Pennsylvania, for example, testing costs, qualification requirements, or GED and HiSET scoring, go to The Pennsylvania GED Exam.

Launching GED and HiSET Online Tests

In the past, both the GED and HiSET exams had to be taken in person at an official Pennsylvania HSE testing site. Online HSE test-taking was never possible. That is, until recently, as we witnessed the introduction of both an online proctored GED exam and a new online HiSET testing option.

For information on the HiSET online testing option, check out ‘Welcoming the online HiSET test,’ and for information on the online GED option, go to ‘Welcoming the online GED test.’
