Pass your high school equivalency
Ready to get your high school diploma?
If you missed getting a high school diploma, you can earn a high school equivalency (HSE) now and get the full benefits of a high school diploma.
It's worth it to get your HSE. People who have a diploma or HSE earn more than people who don't. Also, many jobs and training programs require that you have one or the other.
