High School Equivalency

High School Equivalency (HSE) program is a program designed for adults who have not completed high school. This program is designed to assist students to pass the four parts of the Official High School Equivalency exams.  These exams consist of four parts:  Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics.  Students who pass the requirements for a High School Equivalency diploma are issued a diploma from the North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges.  This diploma can be substituted in most places where a high school diploma is required.

Persons 16 and 17 years of age can be enrolled with the permission of the superintendent of schools. In order to become enrolled in the High School Equivalency program, students must attend an orientation prior to attending class(es). There is no cost for attending the orientation or HSE classes.

For more information about the HSE program, contact the Basic Skills office at 252-222-6195.
