Online GED and HiSET

Until recently, taking the HiSET or GED exam online was not possible. It simply wasn’t available over the Internet. But that has changed. If you want to earn your high school equivalency diploma, you no longer have to come to one of Illinois’ state-designated testing sites.

The HiSET and GED exams are now offered in an online version as well, with the use of a proctor. To read more, go to ‘The Online GED Test,’ and for more HiSET information, check out ‘The HiSET at Home Exam.’

Illinois GED Requirements

In Illinois, applicants are eligible to take the GED exam if they meet these guidelines: They must be 17 years of age or older, not are already high school or GED graduates, and have lived in Illinois for no less than thirty days.

If applicants are of school age and have been engaged in a school setting (public, private, or at home) during the last 12 months, they are required to submit a signed withdrawal letter from the school they attended prior to taking the GED exam.

Individuals who take the GED exam need to present acceptable identification that shows their names, addresses, dates of birth, signatures, and photographs. Acceptable forms of identification are a valid driver’s license, a valid passport, a military ID, or a government-issued (state, nation, or foreign) ID such as a passport.

Who is the GED Exam for?

The GED program is developed to assist men and women who never got a high school diploma with becoming sufficiently prepared so they can acquire their GED credentials, improve their job options, and gain access to colleges, universities, and training and trade schools.

In addition to the four GED subtests, applicants must take and pass the United States and Illinois Constitution Test. The GED exam is available in English, French, and Spanish, and after passing the GED test, you will be awarded the Illinois High School Equivalency Diploma.
