Wyoming High School Equivalency Certificate

As of January 1, 2014, a major change happened in the testing options for the Wyoming High School Equivalency Certificate (HSEC).  
The Wyoming Community College Commission approved multiple pathways to earn the Wyoming High School Equivalency Certificate.  In addition to the GED 2014®, two alternative tests – HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) and TASC (Test of Assessing Secondary Completion) are available in Wyoming.  All three tests are based on the federal College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS).
