High School Equivalency

The HSED program from Educational Testing Service (ETS) replaces the traditional GED program at WITCC, offering an accessible and affordable alternative to those seeking a High School equivalency diploma.
To earn your HSED, you must pass the five HiSET® tests: reading, math, writing, social studies and science.
  • Free pretests are administered through the HiSET® Preparation sites.
  • The test is priced at $50 which covers registration, scoring and transcripts.
  • Up to two free tests per subject are included for up to a year from original test (three tests per subject per year maximum).
  • There is a $10 diploma fee paid before your first test appointment.
  • Testing is available in Sioux City, Le Mars, Cherokee and Denison.
  • Testing in Spanish is available in Sioux City and Le Mars.
A high school equivalency diploma can increase your lifetime earnings, but don't stop there! In Iowa, residents with college degrees earn almost twice as much as adults with a high school diploma or less.
