Cost to take the exam at a Testing Center

Cost 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.

Preparing you at DCET for the GED test

 

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

For many decades, the GED® exam was the only option for students to obtain the Certificate of High School Equivalency. However, in 2016, the Texas State Board of Education approved two additional exams, the HiSET® and the TASC®, allowing adult students a choice of which exam they will take to obtain the Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency. Each of these exams, when passed, will result in the student being awarded a Certificate of High School Equivalency by the Texas Education Agency.

Many other states across the US have moved away from using only the GED® exam to award high school equivalency diplomas. Community and faith based programs, as well as programs provided through school districts and community colleges, help adult learners prepare for any one of these three exams so that they can find better jobs and further their education.

Students who participate in Project BEST, a program of the Tarrant Literacy Coalition, prepare for the HiSET® exam. This test has five sub-tests: Reading, Writing, Math, Science and Social Studies.
