What Is GED and HSED?

Adults who have yet to earn a high school diploma can study for the GED or HSED in the Adult Learning Center. Each year, over 860,000 adults worldwide take the GED tests.

Gateway offers workshops, various computer programs, books, videos and tutoring to help prepare for the GED or HSED tests.

The GED is offered in English, Spanish, and French and consists of five tests:

  • reading
  • writing
  • math
  • social studies
  • science

The HSED consists of the five GED tests, plus three more requirements:

  • Health
  • Civics
  • Career awareness/employability skills

It is also possible to get the HSED in other ways such as earning credits, taking a Gateway program, or starting with a foreign diploma.

You must take an orientation before testing or studying. Gateway has adult basic education learning centers on its Elkhorn, Racine and Kenosha campuses as well as the Burlington Center.
