Motlow College will administer tests for Tennessee High School Equivalency Diploma

July 23, 2015

Motlow College will administer the General Educational Development (GED©) and High School Equivalency (HiSET) tests several times throughout the remainder of 2015. These tests will be conducted on the Moore County campus in the Crouch Center room 1046. Each applicant should decide which test is needed for his or her Tennessee High School Equivalency (HSE) Diploma.

"A high school diploma remains the primary ticket to many entry-level jobs as well as the prerequisite for advancement in employment, occupational training and postsecondary education," said Marie Mosley, testing coordinator at Motlow. "The high school equivalency diploma provides adults with the opportunity to grow, whether it is through further education, enhanced employment or stature within the community."

Applicants interested in completing the GED© must register online or by calling 1-8777-392-6433. The fee for the test is $24 or $120 for the entire test. The GED© is in computer-based format only. The HiSET is available in both computer and paper-based formats. Applicants interested in completing the HiSET must register online or by calling 1-855-694-4739. The fee for the HiSET test is $15 per test or $75 for the entire test.

Both tests meet the criteria for the HSE. Applicants should contact the Service Delivery Area (SDA), formerly the Adult Education Center, in his or her community for test vouchers and information on preparation classes. Applicants must also complete the online registration form, bring a notarized copy of the Official Practice Test, present government-issued picture identification, bring a confirmation letter, and present an Eligibility for Enrollment Form if applicable to the test.
