Online GED Classes

A simple and easy way of getting your GED diploma.

GED® and HiSET® testing is available in an online format and at state-approved HiSET test centers.

The exams allow people who never graduated high school to earn an equivalent education degree.

Testing takes place at a level that compares to that of graduating high school students.

The HiSET exam consists of five modular, independent subtests covering the fields of

  • English Reading
  • English Writing
  • Science
  • Math
  • Social Studies

On the GED test, the reading and writing sections were combined to create one Language Arts subtest.

When you take the online GED or HiSET exam, a proctor supports you in the process and checks whether everything occurs correctly. To learn all about this development, visit this page: Launching the online HiSET test. For information about the online GED test, <- check here.
