This article contains a full listing of GED or HiSET prep locations and test facilities in the Johnstown region. Pennsylvania is offering two options for HSE (high school equivalency) testing, the GED exam and the HiSET.
Both exams are available in online formats and at state-approved HSE testing locations.
The GED is fully computerized while the HiSET is offered in both a paper-based and a computer-formatted version.
The HSE program is for adults who never finished high school and offers them another chance to earn an equivalent credential.
The GED exam includes four separate subtests, also called modules, in these subject areas: Literacy, Science, Social Studies, and Math.
You have the freedom to take and pay for one (or more) of the four subtests at a time.
The HiSET is also modular and contains five subtests as the literacy section is split up into separate writing and reading tests.
Until recently, online HSE testing was not possible. Now, however, we saw the launch of both GED and HiSET online testing options. Check below for more details.

Launching online HiSET and GED tests
In earlier days, both GED and HiSET tests were only offered at official Pennsylvania testing sites. Online HSE test-taking was simply never an option. Now, that has changed as we recently witnessed the introduction of online proctored GED and HiSET testing options.
For detailed information on the new HiSET online test, check out this article: ‘Welcoming online HiSET testing’ and for detailed information on the new GED online testing option, go to this page: ‘Welcoming the online proctored GED test’.
