(BEDFORD) – Since July, eleven students have passed their HSE exam.
One of those students is Jessica Davis of Bedford.
Davis dropped out of high school in 10th grade while dealing with diabetes.
“I thought I would do online classes, but I got a job and never completed the course,” Davis stated.
“I wanted to take this course for myself and for my daughter Rylann, hoping to take some general college courses, that you can improve life outcomes. There is always a plan B,” Davis continued.
“I am interested in emergency management and want to work toward that.”
“HSE courses are designed to help the student succeed in passing the test. As long as you attend the classes and have a desire to succeed, they will work around your personal life and are flexible. Travis Malone is a wonderful instructor,” Davis continued.
Adults who left high school before graduation have a free way to secure their high school equivalency credential. This free program is offered in Lawrence County in both Bedford and Mitchell.
There are five tests that students must pass to achieve an HSE certificate. Those modules are Math, Writing, Science, Social Studies and Reading.

Taking Indiana’s HSE test is your first step to moving forward. Whether your goal is to get a better job or continue on your educational pathway to a certificate, 2-year associate degree or 4-year bachelor’s degree, this is where your second chance starts.
Students can attend classes until they are ready to take the HSE. The HSE can be taken in Bedford in a written exam or Bloomington on a computer. The cost to take the exam is $70, however, if you take the course from WorkOne they can provide some financial assistance.
