What is the HiSET? 

The HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) is a national high school equivalency test from ETS (Educational Testing Service). It is an alternative to the GED test. More information about the HiSET can be found on the ETS website at http://hiset.ets.org.

Will A-B Tech accept HiSET testing as a high school equivalency?

Yes, A-B Tech will accept HiSet testing as a substitute for a high school diploma or GED.

On the A-B Tech online application for admission, the "Education History" asks if you have received a high school equivalency or adult high school diploma. If you took the HiSET test, select "High School Equivalency Diploma" in this section of the A-B Tech application.

How can I get my HiSET scores?
