High School Equivalency Test
The High School Equivalency Test (HiSET®) allows students to earn a California state issued High School Equivalency Certificate. The HiSET® High School Equivalency Certificate is considered the equivalent of a high school diploma and is recognized throughout most states in the United States. Most employers and community colleges accept this in place of a diploma.
The fee for the HiSET is $150 which includes all 5 subject area tests. The 5 subject areas include; Reading, Writing, Math, Science and Social Studies. The fee to retake a failed subject area test is $20. Tests can be retaken twice in a calendar year. There is a rescheduling fee of $10 for each HiSET test. Rescheduling can only be done in the front office at least five working days before each test rescheduled. Please bring your original paperwork and an ID when requesting to reschedule a test. All testing fees must be paid at the Oxnard Adult School office located at the main campus in cash or credit card only.
