Adult Education/High School Equivalency/English Language Acquisition

How to HiSET overview

Eastern Iowa Community Colleges are following the guidance of public health officials. Adult Basic Education, High School Equivalency, and English Language Acquisition testing services have been suspended through April 30.  Instruction will continue to be delivered remotely through the end of the spring session.

Currently enrolled students should check their email for information on how to access the instruction. If you have additional class-specific questions, please email your instructor or reach out to the email address below (be sure to include your class location and instructor’s name, if possible). 

To access your classes, you will need a computer with a microphone and an internet connection. A video camera is helpful, but is not required. You may also use a handheld device such as a smart phone or tablet. If you do not have access to this equipment or to internet services, we will arrange for you to resume your studies when we return to campus. We promise you will not be left behind.

New student registration will resume on May 1.

If you have questions, please contact sjschneider@.

We remain committed to the health, safety and well-being of our entire community.
