About GED®/HiSET®

For adults who did not complete high school, the Tests of General Educational Development (GED® tests) or High School Equivalent Tests (HiSET® tests) provide an opportunity to earn a high school credential. The GED®/HiSET® programs, sponsored by the American Council on Education, enables individuals to demonstrate that they have acquired a level of learning comparable to that of high school graduates. Recognized nationwide by employers and institutions of higher learning, the GED®/HiSET® programs have increased employment, education, and earning opportunities for more than ten million adults since 1942.

Since 1986, ENMU-Roswell’s GED®/HiSET® Testing Center has issued more than 4,000 high school equivalency diplomas. Instruction for the GED®/HiSET® is available, free of charge, through the University’s Adult Education Program, which is funded by the Adult Education Act in a grant from the New Mexico Department of Education, Vocational-Technical and Adult Education.
