HSE-To-School Program

The Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity - Workforce Development (LEO-WD) is pleased to offer the HSE-to-School Program.  The purpose of the program is to inspire and encourage Michigan residents who are pursuing their high school equivalency credential to transition to Michigan community colleges or universities for academic and career focused coursework and programs. Based on available funding, the HSE-to-School Program covers the cost of one attempt on each subject area for the three high school equivalency testing options – GED, HiSET, or TASC - for Michigan residents who meet eligibility requirements.

*HSE-to-School program participants must be 16 years of age or older.  Participants who are 16 and not yet 18 must complete a HSE Age Waiver Form.
