High School Equivalency Diploma

Do you want a career? How about a better paying job?

A High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma will move you forward in your career goals. Having this diploma will improve your ability to secure a better job, get into college or start a job training program. It opens new doors of opportunity and leads to the success you want and deserve.

So, what are you waiting for? Today is the perfect time to start working on your HSE diploma. The Center for Workforce Development offers free HSE classes for those who qualify. A non-refundable, one-time registration fee of $25 is required.

How do you start?

First: To register, visit us online to schedule an individualized assessment (TABE) of your current math and reading levels.

Next: After your assessment (TABE), an advisor will contact you to set up an orientation appointment to review your scores and choose the HSE program that works best for you and your personal schedule. Instruction can be in a traditional classroom setting, at home with a tutoring session at CWD every two weeks, or through the NEDP, the National External Diploma Program, an online competency-based option. Your advisor will help you determine what’s best for you.

After that: Get started! Study, attend class, ask questions, get extra help, and take assessments along the way to measure your progress.

Finally: CWD faculty will guide your learning and advise you when you are ready to take the TASC Test Assessing Secondary Completion™. (This assessment replaced the GED exam in 2014 as the required assessment in New York State to earn your high school equivalency diploma.) Once you pass all five sections of the TASC, you will achieve your High School Equivalency diploma. Then it’s time to celebrate at our HSE Graduation!
