GED/HiSET Preparation

The HiSET® exam is one of only two exams approved in the state of California to meet the requirements for a California High School Equivalency Certificate. It consists of five subject areas: Reading, Writing, Science, Social Science, and Mathematics. There is an individual test for each subject area. The tests are taken one at a time. Successful completion of all five subject tests satisfies the requirements for the High School Equivalency Certificate. HiSET tests are available in both English and Spanish.

College of the Redwoods offers both a preparation class to take and pass the HiSET® as well as HiSET® testing. The preparation class is free; however, a fee is charged to take the HiSET® tests. See below for current free classes. Funding is also available to cover test costs.

To access online testing resources including practice tests and to schedule your exam, visit the HiSET® website:
