High School Equivalency

High School Equivalency (HSE) courses prepare learners to pass a designated set of high school equivalency tests. These courses are delivered in a seated format or online pending availability.

HSE assessments are designed to measure and indicate knowledge equivalent to a graduating high school senior. Students in North Carolina may choose to test via GED®, HiSet®, or TASC. Upon completion, a High School Equivalency Diploma is issued by the North Carolina Community College System.

Placement testing is not mandatory to challenge one of the official assessments above, however, we strongly encourage students to participate in placement testing. Placement testing is free and will gauge the probability of passing an official assessment. In addition, after placement testing, students become eligible for an internal scholarship to offset the cost of an official assessment (application submission required).
