High School Equivalency Assessment (HiSET and GED)

In Massachusetts there are 2 tests offered for earning High School Equivalency Credentials — the HiSET™ (High School Equivalency Test) and GED® (General Education Development). At Greenfield Community College we offer the HiSET test.

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education partnered with SABES (System for Adult Basic Education Support) to create a short video: sabes.org/hse. Please refer to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s High School Equivalency (HSE) Office for additional information: www.doe.mass.edu/hse/.

High School Equivalency Assessment courses are not available at Greenfield Community College. Please contact the following local agencies for information about High School Equivalency Test preparation.

  • The Literacy Project (774-3934) has adult education centers in Greenfield, Turners Falls, Orange, Northampton, Amherst and Ware

For information about and to register for taking the HiSET™ test, go to www.HiSET.ets.org. Please be aware that the site has information that is specific to Massachusetts. Greenfield Community College is a test location for both Paper Based Testing and Computer Based Testing.  The test can be taken in English or in Spanish.

In the past we have supplied copies of transcripts and certificates. We no longer do this. Any requests for transcripts (GED or HiSET) must go through www.diplomasender.com.

Up-Coming Testing Dates at GCC — One subject test can be completed per testing session. NOTE: To register and pay for a testing session go through the HiSET website: www.HiSET.ets.org.
