High School Equivalency Program

Congratulations on taking this important step toward achieving your academic goals!

About the program

The HSE Program helps adult learners earn their high school equivalency diploma, issued by the New York State Education Department.  The HSE Program offers two options: the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC), which replaced the GED in New York State, and the National External Diploma Program (NEDP). TASC prep classes provide instruction in subject areas and skills required to pass the equivalency exam. NEDP requires that students work independently, in conjunction with advisors and assessors, and demonstrate mastery of specific competencies and skill sets in a number of different content areas. No exam is taken.

The Program is offered at the following sites: Albany, Bronx, Brooklyn, Hicksville, Manhattan, Staten Island and White Plains.

Please note that classes are available only during the Spring and Fall semesters. No summer classes will be offered. The next available term will be Fall 2020. Classes will begin in September. Applicants are required to attend an in-person Program Assessment Session. You will be contacted by program staff in the summer of 2020.
