High School Equivalency (GED & HiSET)

The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) now offers multiple options for achieving your high school equivalency. Two computer-based testing (CBT) pathways are available through testing centers or proctored at home: the GED® test or the HiSET® exam.

Wiregrass Georgia Technical College is an official GED® testing center. Candidates must complete demographics information and verify eligibility to test before permission is granted to schedule GED® tests. Pre-registration and advance payments are required. Successful completion of the GED® tests qualifies an individual for a state of Georgia General Educational Development (GED®) credential. GED® credentials are accepted by industry, government, licensing boards, technical colleges, and employers as the equivalent to a high school education. For GED® testing information visit the Adult Education Office or GED® testing official on campus.

Beginning October 2020, Georgia now offers both the HiSET® exam and GED test to qualifying individuals. Both tests allow you to earn your high school equivalency credential. The HiSET® exam is one of three tests (GED, HiSET, and TASC) U.S. states and territories use to measure high school equivalency (HSE) skills. Educational Testing Services (ETS) works closely with states to ensure the HiSET® exam closely reflects the skills of a high school graduate and to provide a fair, rigorous exam.
