GED Classes Jackson, Mississippi

Listed on this page are all GED® prep classes and testing sites in the Jackson, Mississippi area. Mississippi uses two options for high school equivalency (HSE) testing, the GED and HiSET®.

The GED end HiSET tests can be taken in an online format and at state-approved Mississippi test facilities.

The GED is entirely computer-formatted while the HiSET may be taken on paper or on a computer.

HSE testing is for students who quit high school prematurely and gives them another chance to obtain an equivalent degree.

The GED includes four tests in Science, Social Studies, Math, and Literacy that may be taken separately.

The HiSET exam has five tests (Literacy is split up into separate reading and writing tests) that may also be done separately.

Online HiSET or GED testing was, until quite recently, no option. Test-takers needed to show up in person at an official Mississippi HSE test center. Recently, however, that has changed with the arrival of online GED and HiSET testing options. Check below for more information.

Online GED or HiSET test-taking options

Until recently, you could not sit for the GED or HiSET exam over the internet. You were always required to come, in person, to an official Mississippi HSE testing site. Well, that is no longer the case.

Now, we witnessed the introduction of online proctored (OP) versions of the HiSET and GED tests. To learn more about the HiSET-At-Home exam, check out: HiSET test also online available, and for online GED testing information go to GED online testing now available.
