High School Equivalency Exams
If you’re a Colorado resident, 17 or older, and never got your high school diploma, Front Range Community College can help you get your High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma. 16-year-olds can apply for an age waiver.
FRCC offers two High School Equivalency (HSE) exams:
- GED (Boulder County, Larimer, and Westminster Testing Centers)
- HiSET (Larimer Testing Center only)
What’s on the GED?
To earn your GED, you’ll need to pass five computerized tests that are given in four sections, including math, science, social studies, and reasoning through language arts (RLA).
The math, science, and social studies tests each take 90 minutes. Reasoning through language arts is a 150-minute test given in three sections with one 10-minute break after the second section.
Before you take the GED test, we recommend reviewing the test-taking tips and practice tests at GED.com.
FRCC offers GED Preparation Classes at Larimer Campus.
