High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) & HiSET Practice Test Offered at LAVC

The LAVC Specialized Testing Center in conjunction with the CalWORKs (California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids) Office is now accepting registrations for the official High School Equivalency Test (or HiSET®), and the HiSET® Practice Test. 

The HiSET® is the new alternative to the GED; the CA State Board of Education approved the HiSET® for individuals to earn a California High School Equivalency Certificate. To be eligible to take the HiSET®, you must be a California resident, be 18 years or older, have a valid government issued identification, and not be currently enrolled in high school.

LAVC is an official HiSET® Testing Site, and it offers the following:

HiSET® Paper-Based Test
The HiSET® paper-based test is held over two days (Friday and Saturday) once a month, and the computer-based test is available by appointment only. Participants taking the paper-based test must attend both days for each session. 

To take the test, participants must register in person in ACA 1101; last day to register is 2 business days before the test. The fee for the full test is $150.00 and additional fees may apply (non-refundable). Space is limited and pre-registration is required.

HiSET® Practice Test
The HiSET® practice test gives you an idea of how well you may score on the official HiSET® test. The practice test is offered most Fridays at 8:45 a.m.; it is also offered by appointment. To take the practice test, register at 8:30 a.m. on the scheduled day of the practice test in ACA 1101. The fee for the test is $10.00 (non-refundable).
