The State of Illinois has adopted three exams to serve as assessment tools for measuring high school equivalency - GED, HiSET and TASC. Candidates can now select which exam they prefer to take to attain this credential. Morton College has elected to offer both the GED and HiSET exams for individuals seeking to attain their high school equivalency credential.
Please note that these exams are only administered in a computerized format at this institution. Candidates who prefer a paper test version will need to locate an alternate test center offering the paper format. The computerized versions of the GED and HiSET are offered most Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the year. Testing takes place in the Testing Center - Building C, 2nd floor - Room 233C. Candidates must self-register at the respective websites indicated below.
For more information about the GED exams visit the GED Testing Service website.
For more information about the HiSET exams visit the Educational Testing Service (ETS) website.
Morton College will begin offering a computerized version of the Constitution Exam in spring 2016. We are currently finalizing plans and will post an update as more information becomes available.
