High School Equivalency tests to be administered by Motlow State

LYNCHBURG, TN (Nov. 2, 2016) — Motlow State Community College will administer the High School Equivalency (HiSET ™) tests several times throughout the remainder of 2016 and throughout 2017. Test locations will be in Winchester and on the Motlow State Fayetteville, Smyrna and Moore County campuses.

A high school diploma remains the primary ticket to many entry-level jobs. In most cases, it is also the prerequisite for advancement in employment, occupational training, and postsecondary education. 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.

As of April 1, 2016, the General Education Development (GED) test is no longer an option for the High School Equivalency Diploma for residents of Tennessee. The HiSET is the only option for residents of Tennessee who wish to obtain their High School Equivalency Diploma.

Applicants interested in completing the HiSET must register online at or by calling 1-855-MyHiSET (1-855-694-4739).

The fee for the HiSET test is $15 per test or $75 for the entire test, and is available in both computer and paper-based format. Applicants should contact the Service Delivery Area (SDA), formerly the Adult Education Center, in their community for information on preparation classes for the tests and vouchers to take the test.

Applicants must complete the online registration form and bring a notarized copy of the Official Practice Test, present a government issued picture identification, confirmation letter, and an Eligibility for Enrollment Form, if applicable, to the test.
