In January 2014, Maine changed its approved high school equivalency test from the GED to the HiSET. 

HiSET provides adults with the opportunity to obtain a high school equivalency certification with the same legal standing as a high school diploma. Through a pre-testing, preparation, and testing program, it allows test-takers to demonstrate proficiency of the academic skills and knowledge expected by employers and post-secondary institutions. HiSET™ consists of five subtests:

  • Language Arts-Reading

  • Language Arts-Writing

  • Mathematics

  • Science

  • Social Studies

While each person enters the process with varying  academic skills, the steps are the same:  CASAS math and reading     assessments to help focus the right development of skills by classwork/studying/tutoring, pass all five pre-tests, and finally pass the five Official HiSET exams.
