High School Equivalency Certificate Overview

What's New?!

In March 2014, California approved the use of three high school equivalency tests (GED®, HiSET®, and TASC™) for students 18 years old and older, and 17 years old in some instances, for the purpose of receiving a California High School Equivalency Certificate.

High School Equivalency Exam Preparation Class

Lynwood Community Adult School offers High School Equivalency Exam (HSEE) Preparation classes in English and Spanish. Registration for the HSEE Preparation Class remains open until the class reaches maximum capacity. Registration is $15/semester. See class schedule.

Examinees must be 18 years of age and a photo ID is required (see below for details).  Students who successfully pass the test will be issued a California High School Equivalency Certificate from the State of California.
