A Few Common Questions

What’s the difference between monthly and lifetime access?

Monthly is a subscription in which you’ll pay a fee each month until you cancel. Lifetime is an easy one-time payment that will grant you access for life. Monthly is recommended for students who plan to complete the program within a couple of months. If you’d prefer to take your time, a lifetime plan is best.

Do you have a refund policy?

Yes! We'll refund any payment within 7 days if requested, no questions asked.

Can I change my plan later on?

Yes, of course! You can upgrade or change your plan at any time. Not sure which one to choose? Try our $19/month plan and upgrade later if more resources are needed.

What happens if I want to cancel?

You can cancel at any time, no strings attached. Easily cancel from within your account or contact us directly.

How does an Essential Education subscription work?

You pay a set amount each month in exchange for full access to our study program. Use it as much as you want, and then cancel when you're finished. It’s that simple.

The GED & HiSET Test Prep Plus Job Skills program also includes additional courses to help you build skills to find and keep a great new job as well as get ready for college entrance exams. The GED test and HiSET exam are very similar and assess the same basic skills. Where you live determines which test you should take to earn your high school equivalency diploma.
