High School Equivalency (HSE) Preparation Classes

High School Equivalency (HSE) preparation classes are designed to ensure that students pass all sections of the HiSET®, GED, or TASC™ test. 

Exam preparation through Saddleback College includes free classes offered in the subjects that you will be tested on the official exam: Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts. These classes are offered in both English and Spanish. In addition to direct instruction, we also offer free placement and practice tests to assess student readiness for official testing.


*Please note: HSE Orientations for new students have been canceled until further notice. 

*For current HSE students, classes will go online beginning March 30th. Please go to www.hsestudy.com for your teacher's link.

        Classes run January 13 through May 20.
