The Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois Community College Board have 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 testing location is Kankakee Community College (815-802-8300).
Records for Iroquois and Kankakee Counties are kept at the Regional Office of Education. A High School Equivalency transcript or certificate may be requested and picked up in person at 1 Stuart Drive, Kankakee, IL (map). Transcript & certificate fees must be paid with cash or money order. The Regional Office does not accept personal checks or credit/debit cards.
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.
