High School Equivalency Testing
Getting your high school credential could be the most important step you take. Currently two (2) options are available in Oklahoma for high school equivalency testing.
- GED Test
The GED test is a computer-based test offered through Pearson VUE, and tests must be scheduled through GED.com. All testing fees are set by Pearson VUE and Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education. Testing fees must be paid with a valid credit/debit card when scheduled. Unfortunately, cash or checks are not accepted.
- HiSet Test
HiSet test is an alternative to the GED test offering students state-issued high school equivalency credentials. These tests are a paper and pencil format. Registration and fees are scheduled through HiSet at hiset.ets.org. All fees must be paid online through HiSet with a valid credit/debit card, when scheduling to test with Union Adult Learning Center.
Success on High School Equivalency tests is greatly influenced by consistant class attendance and active participation with available resources. The availability of classes is directly impacted by student attendance and participation.
