Should we add a prep site? Do we have to update any details? Please inform us here. We appreciate your feedback.
Holding the Hawaii HSE (high school equivalency) diploma demonstrates that you have academic skills that are equivalent to those of a high school graduate. More than 95% of US universities and colleges and about 96% of employers in the United States accept HSE diplomas in lieu of conventional high school diplomas because they are deemed to be equivalent.
By working towards earning your GED or HiSET exam and securing the HSE diploma, you can have an opportunity to enroll in higher education and an opportunity for a well-paying job.
Online GED Testing?
Though the GED exam is delivered in a “digitalized” format, you cannot take the GED and HiSET tests via the internet. States require you to show up in person at designated testing centers where (and that’s a great change) you can take one of the four GED or five HiSET subtests at a time. There is no need to do it all at one time. Just prepare for one part, and take that subtest when you are all set to do so.
