# GED in Michigan

In Michigan, students can take the GED exam in an online format or at one of Michigan’s official GED testing facilities.

Michigan uses two options for High School Equivalency (HSE) testing, the GED® and HiSET® exams.

The GED is fully computerized whereas the HiSET is offered both on-paper and on-computer. The HiSET exam is also offered online.

HSE testing gives persons without a high school diploma the chance to acquire an equivalent degree.

You can find hundreds of locations all over the state where GED and/or HiSET prep classes are organized.

These prep classes will assist you in becoming all set to successfully sit for Michigan’s HSE (High School Equivalency) exam.

After completion of the GED or HiSET exam, you will be awarded the Michigan HSE diploma which is nationwide regarded as equivalent to a high school diploma by virtually all employers, recruiters, government agencies, colleges, and universities.

The HSE credential will have a positive impact on people’s lives and listed in this post are all facilities in major Michigan areas where you can find GED and/or HiSET classes for proper preparation.

## Michigan GED testing requirements

The minimum age is 16 but for applicants 16 and 17 years of age, restrictions apply, so contact a testing site for details.

Michigan GED exam fee: $150 for all 4 tests ($37.50 per subject field). The HiSET exam is cheaper (see below).

There is NO Michigan residency requirement.

There is no requirement to first take the GED Ready® practice test or another HSE practice test.

You don’t have a high school credential and are not engaged in another program.

In case you fail one of the GED subtests, there is no waiting period in Michigan to take that test again, but when you fail that subtest 3 times, a waiting period of 60 days applies.

The first two GED retakes will set you back just $10 each (for the test center fee) but you’ll have to take them within one year, otherwise, original fees will apply again. The HSE program is crucial for adults who did not finish their high school education. It offers them one more chance to acquire an equivalent diploma. Obtaining the HSE certificate will enhance their employment prospects and open up doors to a college education. ## GED prep classes in Michigan You can prepare for the GED test by studying online.

If you already have a high school diploma or if you are registered for another school program, you will not be allowed to take the HSE exam. You need to be at least 18 years old, though 16/17-year-olds may qualify if they meet specific requirements. ## Online GED and HiSET testing Today, students can also take the HiSET or GED exam online. In the past, the tests were exclusively available at official test centers but that has now changed. You can learn more about the online proctored HiSET exam in this post: online HiSET testing is now possible and for information about the online proctored GED exam, check out this post: online GED exam. ## Michigan GED price tag The cost of the Michigan GED exam is$37.50 per subject, so a total of $150 for all four tests. You can register and pay for one subject at a time. Retesting is$10 for each subject (up to two times per subject, after that regular fees apply again). These retakes at the reduced rate must be completed within one year. After that, the full price must be paid again.

Registration for the GED exam has become very easy! Simply sign up via GED.com or call 1-877-392-6433. Registration doesn’t mean you need to schedule an exam, you do that only when you feel you are ready to do so.  The HiSET subtests can also be taken separately and are slightly cheaper than the GED.

## HiSET cost

The five HiSET subtests will set you back as follows: the first computer-based test costs $48.75 ($10.75 for ETS, $8 for the test center, and a 1-time state administration fee of$30). Each additional computer-based subtest is $18.75 ($10.75 for ETS and an $8 fee for the test center). The first paper-based subtest will cost you$53 ($15 for ETS and an$8 fee for the test center, and a 1-time state administration fee of $30) Each additional paper-based HiSET subtest costs$23 ($15 for ETS fee and an$8 test center fee).

You will get two retests per subject test at the reduced rate of $8 (test center fee) but you’ll have to take these retests within one year or there’ll be a new annual state registration fee of$30. and original testing fees will apply again.

## How to start

When you feel you are ready to go the HSE path, remember these guidelines and get ahead: Get in touch with a GED or HiSET preparation site close to you and find out if you qualify to take the HSE exam. If you do so, check testing dates and eventual fees as they may vary. Check all requirements and regulations at your local HSE test center, and become perfectly prepared to take the HSE exam.

Community bookstores and libraries can also supply all kinds of materials, and there are many locations near you where HSE preparation classes are offered, mostly at no cost at all. Another good alternative is offered through online prep courses. So show up at the exam well-prepared, pass the exam, and get your HSE test diploma.

## GED registration

The GED program is more than just a series of four tests. Go to GED.com and you can create your own account with MyGED, an online portal to prepare and study for the GED exam, and here you can sign up and schedule your appointments to sit for the exam.

It also allows you to see your test results and the program provides you with a lot of information about job options and college education. MyGED is highly flexible, convenient, and gives you the support you will need to pass the GED exam, and hands you the tools to take control of your life and future.

A few years back, the GED exam was revamped to make sure that it measures what colleges and employers expect of candidates. The four content areas are: Reasoning Through Language Arts (2 hours, 35 minutes), Mathematical Reasoning (2 hours, 15 minutes), Science (1 hour, 30 minutes), and Social Studies (1 hour, 10 minutes). The exam is entirely computer-based and offered in English and Spanish.

You have the option to take one module (subtest) at a time. This counts for the GED and HiSET exams. The HiSET exam includes five subtests in Language Reading, Language Writing, Math, Social Studies, and Science and is scored differently than the GED.

The GED passing score on each subject test is 145 on a scale that goes from 100 to 200. The four GED subtests are in Science, Math, Social Studies, and Literacy.
