The HSE Program

In January, 2014, the New York State Education Department replaced the GED® exam with the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC™) as the pathway to earning a High School Equivalency (HSE) Diploma. 

The TASC™ is a seven hour exam administered over two days. It is broken down into five subject areas:

  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Reading
  • Writing

A student must pass each of the five subtests with a minimum score of 500 to earn their HSE Diploma. 

Grandfathering GED® test scores: A candidate may use up to four (4) passing GED® sub-tests (score of 410 or above) taken between 2002-2013 to count towards earning a NYS HSE Diploma.

Classes are FREE of charge and open enrollment allows students to join at any time during the year.
