You can now register for the California Proficiency Program (CPP). To sign up, please visit the HiSET-Proficiency registration page. 
California's High School Proficiency Exam (CHSPE) tests have been replaced by the California Proficiency Examination (CPP). The new CPP measures proficiency in language arts and mathematics using subtests from the State Board of Education approved GED® or HiSET® high school equivalency vendors. Test results from the previous CHSPE test will not be considered for the new CPP. 
Starting now, students can take the CPP test online from their homes, with live proctoring, or on a computer in a testing center. The paper-pencil version is available only in testing centers. The CPP can be taken in both English and Spanish. 
HiSET will be the first vendor to offer the CPP. To prepare for the HiSET-Proficiency, please visit:, to access prep materials to study for the mathematics and language arts subtests. Both vendors provide a list of testing accommodations, test specifications, and testing locations on their webpages.  
After passing the language arts and mathematics subtests of the proficiency program, the student will earn a State Board of Education-issued Certificate of Proficiency which is the legal equivalent to a high school diploma issued by the state of California. After passing the CPP, the student may choose to remain in high school or exit with a parent or guardian’s permission to begin attending higher education or their career. 
Once an individual has taken the CPP, passed both language arts and mathematics subtests, and exited high school, they may take the remaining HSE subtests to earn their HSE Certificate, opening even more doors than the Certificate of Proficiency alone. The CPP is referred to as a program because it acts as a stepping stone for individuals who may choose to earn their HSE Certificate.
