High School Completion/HiSET ™
If you're an adult without a high school diploma, the High School Equivalency Test (HiSET™) could be your route to improved career prospects, a college education and increased earnings potential. HiSET™ replaces the GED in Maine. The Maine Department of Education offers assistance to those seeking to earn their HiSET™ or Adult High School Diploma. If you already earned a GED and need a diploma, scroll down for more information.
HiSET™, covers the same content areas as the current GED and allows test-takers to demonstrate proficiency of the academic skills expected by employers and post-secondary institutions.
The HiSET™ provides adults with an opportunity to obtain a certificate with the legal standing of a high school diploma through a pre-testing, preparation and testing program.

Adult High School Completion

These are secondary educational offerings that lead to a high school diploma awarded by the local district. Because programs vary from location to location, please contact your local Adult Education office for more information.
