The Montana GED® and HiSET® are each a battery of tests that measure 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.

WIOA Adult Education Programs are free of charge and can assist individuals in preparing for the GED and HiSET exams. WIOA Adult Education (AE) also helps individuals to be successful in college and careers. Contact your regional WIOA AE service provider to learn more.
