Alternative to a Fulton High School Diploma


What is the HiSET? - The High School Equivalency Test (HISET) exam is the new alternative to the GED test, it can help you achieve the important state-issued high school equivalency credential. Passing the HiSET exam shows that you have attained the academic knowledge and proficiency equivalent to those of a high school graduate. The HiSET exam has also been aligned to the Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE) College and Career Readiness (CCR) Standards for Adult Education that were released in April 2013. The HiSET diploma/certificate is accepted by employers and accredited colleges in all 50 of the United States. Click on the title above, "What is the HiSET?" for more information.
