New Options for High School Equivalency Exam Available at Larimer Campus

People wanting to take a high school equivalency exam have two new options at Front Range Community College.

The HiSET® exam and the TASC Test Assessing Secondary Completion™ can be taken in the Testing Center at the Larimer Campus.

Both tests cover the five core areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. Both tests are aligned with and measure the College and Career Readiness Standards from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education.

Both tests are computer-based. Both are available in English and Spanish versions.

Test takers must be 17 or older or seek a waiver if 16. They must not be attending a high school, nor can they have earned a high school equivalency or high school diploma previously.

The Testing Center is in the Mount Antero building on the Larimer Campus, Harmony Road and Shields Street in Fort Collins. Fall semester hours are 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays. The phone number is (970) 204-8188.
