DWD Affected Programs & Policies

High School Equivalency Testing

In response to the COVID-19 situation, the Department of Workforce Development has decided to waive the 60-day time limit for HSE testing (High School Equivalency Testing, DWD Policy 2019-01 ). Any candidate who has sat for the HSE test from January 17, 2020 on and has not completed all 5 tests shall have the 60-day time limit waived. This waiver shall remain in effect until further notice. The waiver affects the policy section below.

Indiana HSE candidates must complete the full battery of HSE tests within sixty (60) calendar days from the start of the first subtest. It is not necessary for candidates to pass all subtests during this timeframe. If the full battery of HSE tests remains incomplete on the sixty-first (61st) day, test scores for completed subtests will be invalidated. Candidates whose scores are invalidated must retake the invalidated tests utilizing a different test form. They will then have sixty (60) calendar days to complete the full HSE test battery. Go to HSE page.
