This article lists all GED® prep facilities and testing centers in the Traverse City area. Michigan uses two options for HSE (high school equivalency) testing, the GED and HiSET®.
Both of these options are offered online and at state-approved Michigan test centers. To learn more about the online HiSET and GED tests, check below.
The HSE program is for persons who did not finish high school and gives them another opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.
HSE testing is done at a level that’s comparable to that of graduating high school seniors.
The GED is entirely computer-based while the HiSET is offered both on paper and on a computer.
The four GED tests are in Mathematical Reasoning, Reasoning through Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science.
You can take one of the four GED subtests at a time. You don’t need to take the entire GED battery in one session.
The HiSET exam comes with five subtests as the section Literacy contains separate writing and reading tests. The HiSET modules may also be dealt with separately.
