Oregon High School Equivalency ​Program​

Oregon's High School Equivalency Program, administered by the HECC Office of Community Colleges and Workforce Development (CCWD) oversees the GED® test preparation, instruction and testing process in Oregon. ​The GED® program provides individuals with an opportunity to earn a GED® test credential. Earning a GED® test credential can help individuals improve their chances to find work, increase earnings, and/or pursue additional education through community colleges, universities or training programs.

The HECC works in partnership with GED Testing Service (GEDTS)​, the 17 community colleges and other state, community, county and local partners to provide GED® test preparation and testing to Oregonians across the state. The HECC provides leadership, technical assistance, training, professional development and guidance in support of the 2014 GED® test series to Oregon community colleges, the Oregon Department of Education GED® Option Program, many community programs, and over 70 test sites across Oregon. 


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.
