High School Equivalency Testing
Did you know that you can take the High School Equivalency tests directly at Bristol Community College, without taking classes, if you are prepared?
High School Equivalency Preparation
Congratulations on deciding to start your journey to earn your high school equivalency!
In Massachusetts, the High School Equivalency (HSE) Test (HiSET) and General Education Development (GED) exam both provide a state-issued, alternative credential to the high school diploma. A high school diploma or HiSET/GED credential is essential for your pathway into college, training programs, the military and most jobs.
Bristol Adult Education offers classes that will put you (16+ years-of-age) on a pathway to success by preparing you to take the HiSET and GED exams. Work independently or with a teacher in a group at a location that is convenient for you.
These non-credit classes are offered at the Fall River, Taunton and Attleboro campuses in face-to-face or online formats. Take the classes you need and finish when you are ready to take the tests.
Some classes are free, while others may have a small fee. Financial assistance may be available. Here are your next steps:
