Test Prep

HSE Preparation

During these uncertain times you can still work toward getting your HSE through the Merrillville Adult Education (MAE) program.

MAE could also offer you free training for a future career!

Classes are conducted in-person with evening hours with our teachers; we will also use a modified online class set-up. 

Interested? Our contact information is listed below.



Beginning July 1, 2021 the state of Indiana is changing its HSE test from TASC to HiSET! This means any person who has not passed all five subjects on the TASC test will have until SEPTEMBER 30 to successfully complete the test.

Merrillville will have testing dates (noted below) for any tester who needs to make up any portion of the test. Contact Sherri Green for more information or to ask about the availability for testing.

Test prices and registration will remain the same (see below).  In July, we will also transition our instruction for the HiSET test.

We also offer modified online classes.

You MUST come in to select your test date, pay your $115 testing fee (cash - exact amount) and bring your Indiana photo ID. 

Once you register, you will be given your test dates. If, after completing the test, you need to re-test in a non-passed subject, the cost is $23 per subject.

We do offer an optional Readiness Test before you begin your registration process. This test will be done Monday-Thursday evenings.
