Scores and HSE Credentials

To see your official HiSET® scores, log into your HiSET account. On average, official scores are posted within:

  • three business days for multiple-choice subtests
  • five business days for Language Arts – Writing Subtest

Your scores are automatically sent to the state where you tested — at a physical location or an at home exam. The state that issues your high school equivalency credential will be the state where you completed and passed your last HiSET subtest.

Taking Another Subtest

When you're ready to schedule your next subtest, you can:


You can take each HiSET subtest up to three times in a calendar year. However, each state or jurisdiction may also have its own policies for retaking a test. For example, some have a waiting period before you can retest or additional test center fees that may apply. Make sure you check your state requirements.

Once you've determined if you're eligible to retest, you can schedule your appointment in either of the ways listed above.
