High School Equivalency certificate

 

The Illinois Community College Board has authorized three different tests to meet the high school equivalency requirements.

Tests include:

  • General Education Development (GED)
  • High School Equivalency Test (HiSET)
  • Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC)

Illinois State law requires taking and passing an Illinois State Constitution test in order to receive a High School equivalency certificate. 

The test is offered at Kankakee Community College. Call 815-802-8300 for more information on scheduling a test.

Records for Iroquois and Kankakee Counties are kept at the I-KAN Regional Office of Education. 

A High School Equivalency transcript or certificate may be requested and picked up in person at 1 Stuart Dr., Kankakee, IL.

What’s the difference between a transcript and certificate?

A transcript shows the scores for each segment of the test. Colleges and many employers require these documents to be “official” which means the document is in a sealed envelope with an official seal on the envelope.

A certificate is the diploma handed out upon completion of a high school program.
