VU offers free high school equivalency testing
July 7, 2020
VINCENNES, Ind.— For the first time, Vincennes
University is offering free testing services for students enrolled in
Adult Basic Education programs statewide through December 31.
According to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, the
Indiana HSE (High School Equivalency) is an alternative for earning a
high school diploma. The HSE Diploma can be earned after completing a
test based on five subject areas (math, reading, writing, science, and
social studies). The skills taught and eventually tested on are at the
same level as those of graduating high school seniors.
"Vincennes University is excited to eliminate one of the largest
barriers for Adult Basic Education students,” noted VU Vice President
of Workforce Development & Community Services David Tucker.
“Because students will be able to take the HSE exam for free, they
will be able to complete classes and earn their equivalency at
virtually no cost.”
VU teaches ABE
courses online, and in Daviess, Dubois, Gibson, Knox, Lawrence,
Martin, Orange, Perry, Pike, Posey, Spencer, and Vanderburgh counties
