The high school equivalency exam provides adults who did not complete high school the opportunity to certify their academic knowledge and skills. A high school diploma or Certificate of High School Equivalency is required for many entry-level jobs.
In many cases, it’s also the prerequisite for advancement in employment, occupational training, and post-secondary education.

Preparing you at DCET for the GED test

Taking the high school equivalency test in Spanish allows Spanish-speaking adults with limited English skills to advance more quickly toward their educational and professional goals. Obtaining a Certificate of High School Equivalency allows Spanish-speaking students to enroll in higher education courses, attend English language classes at a community college, and/or obtain a more secure job.

However, there are a limited number of Spanish high school equivalency preparation classes in the Tarrant County area. The Coalition hopes to increase the capacity of these programs by providing resources to the programs, while simultaneously matching Spanish-speaking adults with their services.

This test has five sub-tests: Reading, Writing, Math, Science and Social Studies.

It ranges from $125 to $145 per student, depending on which exam the student chooses. You can help an adult student take this important step by contributing to our assistance fund for low income students who are ready to take the high school equivalency exam.

The full battery of exams take a student approximately seven hours to complete. The GED exam is a computer-based test; the HiSET and TASC exams are offered in a computer based and paper based format. Preparation classes focus on improving an adult's skills in the subject content areas; students attend classes at least twice a week.

Almost all students need individual help and additional practice in order to successfully prepare for the high school equivalency exam. However, not every program is able to serve students on such an individualized basis because of the shortage of instructors.
