|Time to Complete||The amount of time varies depending on the number of credits you need to complete your diploma, how many hours you can attend in-person or online per week, your skill levels in reading and math, and your ability to learn new material and stay focused throughout your program.||The amount of time it takes to prepare for and pass the GED/HiSET exam varies for each student.|
