The only High School Equivalency test offered in Montana.

Whether you want to pursue a career or attend college, earning a high school equivalency credential is more important than ever. Now there is an affordable alternative to the GED® test that offers you more choices — the HiSET® exam from ETS.

The HiSET Exams

The HiSET exam provides important advantages that give you the best chance to succeed on test day.

More flexible.
The HiSET exam can be taken in multiple formats and multiple languages, and it provides a number of accommodations for test takers with disabilities and health-related needs. See Requirements by State or Jurisdiction for available formats at your local test center.

More accessible.
You'll have more test center options, so you can choose the one that's most convenient for you.

More affordable.
The HiSET exam is the least expensive high school equivalency test on the market.


Once you pass the HiSET exam, you'll have the valuable state-issued credential you need to advance your career or continue your education.

“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”

~ Socrates
