HiSET® Exam at Home
The HiSET® exam at home is a safe and convenient option for students who are unable to test at a test center due to public health concerns. The subtests are:
- identical in content, format and on-screen experience to tests taken at a test center
- taken on your own computer at home or another secure location and monitored by a human proctor online through ProctorU®
- available 4 a.m.–7 p.m. ET, seven days a week
You can take the HISET exam at home if you meet your HiSET state requirements and are 18 years of age or older. If you're 16 or 17 years old, you must apply with and be approved by your state. Contact your state directly to find out if the at home option is available to underage test takers.
