A certificate or program that is a high school equivalency basically says that you know as much as a typical high school student even though you didn't get a diploma from your high school. You have to take a test usually to get it. The GED is an example of that

What is a high school equivalency on the college application?

A high school equivalency or HSE is a recognized alternative to a high school diploma. There are three common exams used to determine high school equivalency:

The General Educational Development (GED®) test

The High School Equivalency Test (HiSET)

The Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC)

Good luck.
