If you are an adult without a high school diploma, the HiSET® could be your route to improved career prospects, a college education, and increased earnings potential. To earn a HiSET® credential, you are required to successfully pass five exams in the areas of Reading, Writing, Math, Social Studies, and Science. HiSET®exam preparation and testing are free to Maine residents.
