HSE and MHS Partnership

No high school diploma holding you back?

Learn how MHS can help!

Nearly 10% of Indiana’s adults age 25-64 don’t have their high school diploma. Workers who have a diploma earn over $8,000 more a year than those who don’t.

MHS and the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) want to make it easier for HIP members to get their High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma.

The HSE is a way for adults to earn a high school diploma. Your HSE diploma can be earned after completing a test based on five subject areas including Math, Reading, Writing, Science, and Social Studies.

Whether your goal is to get a better job or continue your education to get a certificate, 2-year associate degree or 4-year bachelor’s degree, earning your HSE diploma is the first step.

Yes! The time you spend in free Adult Basic Education classes to prepare for the test and time spent taking the test count toward your qualifying hours.

MHS has partnered with DWD to provide HIP members with free vouchers to cover the cost of the Indiana HSE test. When your test is scheduled, MHS can also help you with transportation to and from the testing site through Lyft.

It’s easy! Just call MHS’ Gateway to Work team. They will help you sign up to receive a voucher for the test and provide you with options for education classes to prepare. Call us today at 1-877-647-4848 and choose the Gateway to Work option.
