High School Equivalency Test (HiSET)

​Beginning January 1, 2015, the Orange County Department of Education (OCDE) will no longer administer the GED test.  The new test that OCDE will administer is referred to as the High School Equivalency Test or HiSET.  Upon fully completing and passing the HiSET, test takers will receive a high school equivalency certificate issued by the State of California. 

Please refer to the following documents for registering to take the HiSET:
