Georgia High School Equivalency (GED & HiSET) Program

Welcome to the home of the official Georgia High School Equivalency (HSE) Program (formerly the GED Testing Program) where you can find everything you need to know about choosing a high school equivalency (HSE) pathway, taking your tests or enrolling in classes, and earning your high school equivalency (HSE) credential. The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) now offers multiple options for achieving your high school equivalency. Two computer-based testing (CBT) pathways are available through testing centers or proctored at home: the GED® test or the HiSET® exam. TCSG is also piloting a workforce-based solution to a high school diploma through joint enrollment called Career Plus.
