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.
