Information for Home Schooled Applicants

Home schooled students sometimes take High School Equivalency Tests as a way to demonstrate a high school credential for colleges or employers. A home schooled student who is 18 or older may register for the HiSET™ Test and schedule testing at any local testing center.

A home schooled student who is 16 or 17 may seek approval for HiSET Testing by submitting Request to Waive the Age Requirement for the High School Equivalency Exam (HiSET) Acrobat Reader signed by a parent and a representative of the agency that has been notified of home schooling. Students under 18 must also demonstrate that they have passed HiSET Official Practice Tests.
