High School Equivalency Test (HiSET)

​​Due to Covid-19 concerns, the ACCESS HiSET Center has ceased testing
until further notice.  If you have prepaid for testing, please send an email to
​Jennifer Barada at jbarada@ocde.us to make an appointment to pick up
your payment and/or to apply your payment to a future testing date.  Thank you!​​

Beginning January 1, 2015, the Orange County Department of Education (OCDE) will no longer administer the GED test.  The new test that OCDE will administer is referred to as the High School Equivalency Test or HiSET.  Upon fully completing and passing the HiSET, test takers will receive a high school equivalency certificate issued by the State of California.
