The Illinois Community College Board has authorized three different tests to meet the high school equivalency requirements.
- 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.
$1 will be added for mailed transcripts and certificates.
$2 convenience fee will be added when paying by credit card.
