Here are a few frequently asked questions that will help you decide if an online education is for you.

What is HiSet?

HiSet is the High School Equivalency test that is offered in Louisiana to residents age 16 and older. This program is formerly the GED program.

What can I do with a HiSet?

Many of our students go on to attend technical college here at NWLTC or they go to four year universities, work toward job promotions or join the armed forces. HiSet is a way to help you gain more freedom in your life!

How long does it take to complete the Learn 2 U program?

This depends on where you are when you begin. All our students are on different learning levels, so they all have different goals and objectives. Typically, it takes from 3-6 months to complete the HiSet coursework then students take the actual HiSet test.

How much does it cost to take the HiSet exam?

Educational Testing Services charges $90 for the test. They have information about it on their site here.

How much does the Learn 2 U program cost?

There is a one time non-refundable testing fee for our online program.

How do I apply?

For more information, contact Amy Ennis at amyennis@nwltc.edu There is an application process because we want to be sure you are able to use the online programs before you start your classes.

What subjects are covered?

We cover Social Sciences (Economics, Civics, American and World History, World Geography), Science (Life Science, Earth Science and Physical Science), Reading Comprehension, Writing (including essay) and Math (Pre Algebra, Algebra and some College Algebra).

How much time should I expect to spend each week on the online course work?

Our students are expected to spend at least 10 hours a week (combined) on the various subjects. So they may spend 2 hours on Math, an hour on Science, 3 hours on Social Sciences, and 4 hours on Reading. Students will have a “coach” who will check in with them weekly and help them set goals so they will meet the overall goal of completing the coursework to prepare for the HiSet.

Do I need to have internet at home to do online courses?

No, but it is recommended. If you don’t have internet at home, you’ll need to have a place you can go to use the internet, such as the library. Some of our content can be accessed through a Smart Phone, but not all of it will be available this way.

What if I decide online courses aren't for me and I want to take classes face to face?

Don’t worry. If you decide the online courses just aren’t working, then you will let us know so we can work with you to get you into a face to face program.

How can I get a copy of my HiSet or GED?
