High School Diploma Program
Academic classes and individualized programs offer an opportunity for adults who have not completed high school to earn their diploma.
The HiSET® (the High School Equivalency Test) exam is a new high school equivalency testing program that will help you take the next step toward a college degree or a rewarding career. Educational Testing Service (ETS) and the Iowa Testing Programs recently created the HiSET program to provide you with a more affordable, more accessible alternative to other high school equivalency tests. It’s another way for you to get the credentials you need to continue your education or to succeed in the workplace.
