The Oregon High School Equivalency Program oversees the GED® test preparation, instruction, and the testing process in Oregon. Earning a GED® test credential can help individuals improve chances to find work, increase earnings, and/or pursue additional education through community colleges, universities or training programs.
Our mission is to serve as a bridge to higher education, trade schools, apprenticeship programs, and employment opportunities for Oregonians who have not earned a high school diploma.
The Oregon High School Equivalency Program is part of the Higher Education Coordinating Commission's (HECC) Office of Community Colleges and Workforce Development. We work in partnership with the GED® Testing Service (GEDTS), educational institutions, testing sites, and numerous state, community, county, and local partners to provide both GED® test preparation and testing to Oregonians statewide. We also work with the Department of Corrections on education opportunities for individuals in custody. GED® education and/or testing is provided by the following organizations and programs.
The HECC supports these opportunities for Oregonians by providing leadership, technical assistance, training, professional development, and guidance in support of multiple programs across the state. We send regular updates to our network of GED® test credential preparation sites and testing sites.
