Eastern Iowans can receive their high school equivalency diploma (HSED) by completing our Iowa Board of Education approved program. You can get a HSED by successfully completing several multiple choice tests that cover reading, writing, social studies, science and math.
The greatest difference between a HSED and a high school diploma is that the HSED demonstrates competency in all five subject areas by successfully completing exams in those areas, whereas a high school diploma is received by earning credits and fulfilling a school's curriculum requirements. Some colleges, branches of the armed forces and employers have specific high school diploma requirements, so it is important to investigate these when making career and educational plans.
