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:
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.
