High School Equivalency
Status Report

This High School Equivalency (HSE) Status Report can be used to search candidate records in the NYS HSE database and to verify NYS HSE diplomas/transcripts or current HSE status. If a candidate needs to take one or more subject tests to obtain an HSE diploma, the subject test(s) required will be displayed.

This Status Report is not for high school diplomas or transcripts. To verify a high school diploma status please contact the last high school attended.

An unofficial summary of a candidate's record will be accessible through this Status Report no later than 10 weeks after receipt of GED scores by the HSE Office.

Colleges and employers may use this temporary verification to confirm an HSE diploma while awaiting an official copy. To order an official copy, please submit the required form and fee to Duplicate Request.

NYS HSE records prior to 1983 may not be accessible through this Status Report. A duplicate request must be submitted for candidate records prior to 1983. If you have additional questions, please contact hse@nysed.gov.
