In this article, we have posted all GED® and HiSET prep sites and test centers in the York region. Pennsylvania provides two options for HSE (high school equivalency) testing, the GED exam and the HiSET.
Both tests are available online and at state-certified HSE test centers.
The HSE test offers adult that never graduated high school the opportunity to secure an equivalent diploma.
The GED exam includes four separate tests in Literacy, Science, Math, and Social Studies
There’s no need to deal with the entire GED battery all at once. The four GED subtests can be completed one test at a time.
The HiSET has five tests (Literacy has separate reading and writing tests). These tests can be taken separately, too.
Both HSE exams assess academic proficiency at a level that’s similar to that of a graduation HS student.
In the past, online HiSET or GED testing was never possible. But recently, we saw the launch of both GED and HiSET online proctored testing options. For more information, check the bottom of this page.

Introducing GED and HiSET online proctored exams
In earlier days, both the HiSET and the GED exam could not be taken online. Your personal appearance at one of Pennsylvania’s state-designated official HSE testing centers was required. Recently, however, all of that changed as we saw the introduction of both GED and HiSET online proctored testing options.
If you want to read more about the newly introduced online HiSET exam, check out this article: ‘Welcoming an online HiSET test’, and if you want more information on the recently launched online proctored GED testing option, go to ‘Welcoming a new online proctored GED testing option’.
