 High School Equivalency (HSE)

Success is just clicks awayTM. The HSE program helps students prepare for, pass the test and move on to better jobs with better wages.

The High School Equivalency (HSE) tests allow adults to demonstrate that they have the knowledge and skills equivalent to a high school diploma. Having a HSE provides many opportunities—especially in the job market—for persons who did not graduate from high school. It also is a first step toward pursuing higher education opportunities.

KCC has a comprehensive range of instruction and services to help students succeed on the HSE test!  All HSE classes are offered at no cost to the public  New class sessions begin every eight weeks at several convenient locations. Students study at their own pace. Helpful and friendly teachers assist students. Program orientations are offered regularly.

KCC also serves as an approved testing center for the computer-based HSE tests including GED and HiSET (paper/pencil version also available).
