HiSET Test Dates & Information for 2017-18 (pdf)


Please be advised that the New Hampshire GED or HiSET Certificate of High School Equivalency can be neither earned nor obtained via the Internet or through correspondence programs. The Tests of General Educational Development (GED Tests) or the HiSET require extensive preparation and the demonstration of a high level of high school knowledge and academic skills. The Tests are administered in New Hampshire only at Official  Testing Centers under the direction of the New Hampshire Department of Education, Bureau of Adult Education. 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.
