High School Equivalency
High School Equivalency (HSE) Certificate
A High School Equivalency certificate is issued by the state and is a portable credential, which means it is accepted from state to state as an HSE credential.
To earn an HSE certificate, a student must earn passing scores on each of the subjects of the HSE exam: mathematics, reading, writing, writing essay, science, and social studies.
