** Wisconsin requires students to obtain counseling from an approved educational advisor in order to take the GED test. This GED/HSED Orientation course is designed to determine your eligibility to be granted a GED or HSED and to satisfy this counseling requirement.
You must be at least 18.5 or your 9th-grade class must have graduated high school.
You are not enrolled in any public or private high school.
You have lived in Wisconsin for at least ten days, or be a migrant worker, or the child of a migrant worker.
GED Orientation Course Objectives:
- Determine the options available to you to earn a GED or HSED
- Complete activities necessary to work toward an identified goal, career, or occupation
- Develop a plan for completion of one of the GED/HSED options
You will not be able to schedule tests prior to fulfilling this requirement. If you have completed GED/HSED Orientation (at Blackhawk or elsewhere) and have an approved GED.com account, you are eligible to schedule your test.
Wisconsin's High School Equivalency Program, administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI), oversees the GED test preparation, instruction, and testing process in Wisconsin.
