HiSET Exam at Home

To meet the needs of test takers who can't test at a test center because of public health concerns, ETS is offering the HiSET® exam at home option. With the at home option, you can take any of the five subtests that make up the HiSET exam on your own computer at home or in another secure location.

Each subtest delivered at home has the same content, format and on-screen experience as the test you would take at a test center. Your at home appointment will be monitored by a human proctor online through ProctorU®.

Currently, at home appointments are available 15 hours a day, seven days a week. Please click below to find out more about how you can take you HiSET Exam at Home!
