GED Classes Lafayette, Louisiana

This page shows all HiSET® (formerly GED®) classes and test centers in the Lafayette, Louisiana area. Louisiana uses the HiSET for the state’s high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.

HSE testing offers students that quit high school before graduating an extra chance to acquire an equivalent degree.

The HiSET has five subject tests in math, reading, writing, social studies, and science.

The HiSET is available in both paper-based and computer-based formats.

Online HiSET testing was, until recently, not possible. Testing had to be done at a state-designated testing site in person but now, a new online HiSET testing option was introduced. Learn more below.

The GED/HiSET diploma is accepted in the same way as a high school degree by practically all employers and schools.

New HiSET online testing option

Until recently, you could not take the HiSET exam in an online format. If you wanted to earn your Louisiana high school equivalency diploma, you had to show up, in person, at an official Louisiana HiSET testing facility. Now, however, this has all changed with the arrival of a new online HiSET testing option that’s called the HiSET-At-Home Exam.

So now you have also the option to take the HiSET assessment from your home using an online format where a proctor will see if you do everything in line with some pretty strict regulations. Check out ‘Introducing a new online HiSET testing option’ to learn more.
