High School Equivalency Testing Program

The High School Equivalency Testing Program gives adults and out-of-school youth an opportunity to demonstrate their academic skills and to earn the New Hampshire High School Equivalency Certificate.

Notice: As of Jan. 1, 2019, the high school equivalency testing fee structure will change.

As of Jan. 1, 2014, New Hampshire is using HiSET, published by Educational Testing Service, as the New Hampshire High School Equivalency Test. Test-takers who did not complete and pass all sections of the GED Tests before the end of December 2013, will have to start over with HiSET.

It's also important to know that you cannot take high school equivalency tests online. A Web site that suggests that you can take HiSET or any high school equivalency tests online is not legitimate. Even if tests are given on computer, you must take them onsite at an authorized testing center. Any other high school equivalency certificate not issued by the New Hampshire Department of Education or another jurisdictional testing authority may be of dubious value and may not be accepted by employers, colleges and universities, or the military.
