This article lists all GED® (in Louisiana: HiSET®) prep locations and testing sites in the Houma region. In Louisiana, you must pass the five subtests of the HiSET exam to earn your high school equivalency (HSE) diploma.
The HSE program offers those who quit high school prematurely the opportunity to get hold of an equivalent degree.
The HiSET has five subtests in the subject areas of Language Writing, Language Reading, Math, Social Studies, and Science.
Testing occurs at a level that’s comparable to what high school students must command upon graduation.
The HiSET is available in both a computerized and a paper-and-pencil format and the five modules may be taken separately.
In the past, taking the HiSET or GED test online was no option. But the arrival of the HiSET-Exam-At-Home online testing option has changed that. Read more below.
Bear in mind, though, that if websites try to sell you GED or HiSET documents online, this is fraudulent. Schools and employers can easily check if your diploma is valid so don’t waste any money or time on this sort of practice.

Online HiSET testing option
Until recently. the HiSET exam, like the GED, was never offered online. To acquire your Louisiana high school equivalency credential, personal appearance at one of Louisiana’s state-approved HiSET testing centers was required. However, the introduction of a new online HiSET test-taking option called the HiSET-At-Home Exam has changed this.
So now, you may also sit for the five HiSET subtests from the comfort of your home via an online testing format. A proctor will check if you do everything in accordance with the regulations. Visit ‘Online HiSET Test-taking Option’ to read more.
Successful applicants must earn eight points or more (out of 20) on each of the five tests and must score at least 45 points in total. They also are required to get no less than two (out of a possible six) points in the essay section. Each of the five tests has 40 to 50 questions in multiple-choice format, and the writing section includes an essay-style assignment as well.
The HiSET, like the GED, is not offered over the internet. Although it’s perfectly okay to use online resources to get all set for the HiSET, you must come to an official, state-approved testing site in person. For eligibility criteria check out this page: HiSET testing in Louisiana.
In today’s job market, people who left high school without a diploma are finding it hard to get any type of work. People that never finished high school face a heavy burden just to make ends meet. For older adults without a high school diploma, going back to high school is not an option and the GED/HiSET program is one of their few alternatives.
The HiSET exam comes with five separate tests on the educational fields of Language Writing, Language Reading, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science. A greater focus on critical thinking has replaced comprehensive reading in the testing of Social Studies and Science. The arithmetic section now has many questions on advanced mathematical problems such as quadratic equations and factoring polynomials.
