In this post, we list all GED® prep facilities and testing centers in the Orangeburg region. South Carolina is using the computer-formatted GED exam for HSE (high school equivalency) testing.
The GED can be taken both online and at certified South Carolina testing sites.
The HSE exam is for persons who don’t have a high school diploma and provides them with the opportunity to acquire an equivalent degree.
The GED contains four modules (separate subtests) in Language, Math, Science, and Social Studies that may be completed one subtest at a time.
Until recently, to sit for the GED test, your personal appearance at an official South Carolina test center was required. There was no online test option.
That has recently changed, though, with the arrival of the online proctored GED testing option. To learn more, check below at the bottom of this post.

To learn if you qualify for the HSE program visit GED Program in South Carolina.
After successfully completing the GED (General Education Development) exam, you will be awarded to High School Equivalency Diploma, a credential that is all over North America recognized and accepted just like a common high school diploma by employers, official institutions, recruiting agencies, and academic institutions.
Online GED testing introduced
In earlier days, sitting for the GED test was never possible over the internet. Students looking to get hold of their high school equivalency diploma had to appear in person at one of South Carolina’s state-approved HSE test centers.
Well, that has now changed with the arrival of an online GED testing option. More information is found here: ‘Welcoming the online proctored GED test’.
