GED® and HiSET® Testing

The American Council on Education and Pearson Vue launched a new GED® test series in January 2014.  ACC began delivering the GED® 2014 official tests on January 21, 2014.  We also offer the HiSET® official tests.  Both tests are available in English and Spanish.  The GED® is offered on the computer, and the HiSET® is offered in paper format at ACC.  Both tests are recognized by the North Carolina Community College System as equivalent to a high school diploma and are currently in use in many states across the US.

We offer GED® and HiSET® testing at our main campus weekly mornings, evenings, and selected Saturdays.  Our testing schedule varies – visit the links below to view the current schedules.
