High School Equivalency Diploma

The High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) has replaced the General Education Development (GED)®  test as Iowa's assessment required to earn a state-issued high school equivalency diploma in January 2014. The HiSET provides individuals who did not complete a high school program the opportunity to receive their high school equivalency diploma. To earn a HiSET®, candidates must successfully complete a series of five subject area tests (Mathematics, Literature and the Arts, Writing, Science and Social Studies).
