ETS HiSET (Formerly GED)

The Montana ETS HiSET® is a battery of tests that measures a student's academic skills as compared to a high school graduate.  If passed, a Montana High School Equivalency Diploma is issued which is accepted by institutions of higher education and employers as equivalent to a regular high school diploma.
