This page lists all GED®-HiSET class locations and testing facilities in the greater Roswell region.
New Mexico is using the computerized GED exam for high school equivalency (HSE) testing.
Additionally, New Mexico welcomed the HiSET exam for this purpose. The HiSET is available both on-paper and on-computer.
Both HSE exams measure knowledge at the same level that may be expected of graduating HS seniors.
The GED exam comes with four separate subtests that must be completed within a 2-year period of time.
HiSET testing needs to be done through five subtests that may also be taken individually. The section Literacy includes separate writing and reading tests.

The GED – who is it for?
The new computer-formatted GED (General Education Development) or the HiSET exam is for adults who, for whatever reason, never completed high school, and offers them one more chance to acquire a similar diploma. To see if you are eligible, visit GED-HiSET testing in New Mexico.
The credential that you will receive after successfully completing the New Mexico high school equivalency exam is nationwide accepted as equivalent to a high school diploma by government agencies, businesses, and institutions of higher education. Please note that online high school equivalency testing is not possible.
Testing must be done in person at an official GED /HiSET testing site. Websites with a different message are fraudulent and operated by con artists who only want to steal your money. Online prep courses, like the one offered for free on this website, may be a good thing but there is NO online GED testing.

Go to GED.com to learn that the new GED program is much more than just a group of four tests. Sign up with MyGED, create your account, and discover an online portal where you can find a lot of information about the best preparation, how to schedule and re-schedule test appointments. Here you can check your scores, and learn about job market possibilities and continued education in university and college, as well as practice tests and payment information.
GED – what’s new
Your MyGED account is your start-to-finish manual and guidance tool for the entire GED program, it is flexible and convenient, and gives you the support you need during your preparation and even after you pass the set of four GED tests.
The GED program was completely re-built from the ground up and is now the best tool available for you to take your future into your own hands. The GED program was updated to ensure it measures your skills and knowledge at the level of graduating high school seniors, and to harmonize with expectations and requirements of colleges and employers.
The GED exam comprises of four independent tests on the following content areas: Science (90 minutes); Social Studies (70 minutes); Literacy (150 minutes, including a 10-min. break); and Mathematics (115 minutes), and is available in a computer-based version only, and in the languages English and Spanish.
You may take one of the four tests (modules) at the time you feel sufficiently prepared to do so, and your scores will stand for two years! So prepare for one tests, pass that section, and move ahead to the next part!
GED passing score
To pass the GED examination you had to score no less than 150 points on all four tests, but this changed already two years after the latest GED test introduction. The required score per test is was lowered to 145 because it appeared the bar was raised too high. So now you need at least 580 points overall to pass. The HiSET comes with a different scoring method.
In New Mexico, the cost per GED subject test is $20.00 ($80.00 in total), and two free retests are included. The HiSET exam costs $75, and the minimum HiSET score on each subtest is 8 out of a possible 20 points. The essay part must result in at least two out of six points, and the total score must be in the 45-100 range.
ENMU-Roswell’s GED /HiSET Testing Program continuously receives high praise, and so again after a recent GED/HiSET visit and audit. HSE administrators determined that the ENMU GED/HiSET testing center is functioning in accordance with security regulations and procedures set by GED Testing Services and that the center can be seen as a model for testing centers.
The GED administrators concluded that the ENMU GED testing program provides a valuable service to its candidates and to the community as well. The school’s HSE staff continually is improving on all aspects of the procedures, and this has resulted in a great testing center.
The ENMU GED/HiSET test center uses a well-functioning and documented registration process that has proved to be highly effective. The school’s staff is also helping the community’s disabled individuals and is providing a room for them. ENMU-Roswell Testing Center’s employees take their tasks seriously and fulfill their duties in a way that makes the center function efficiently and successfully. To give you an example,
ENMU’s Adult Education’s Chief Examiner provides several off-site presentations to explain to the community about strict procedures and policies the school’s GED/HiSET Testing Program, and this has been a great help to let the community get a good idea of the process and the procedures.
The testing center is situated on the 2nd floor of the school’s Instructional Center and offers regularly scheduled GED /HiSET exams on Tuesdays, and the exam is offered in Spanish as well (on the last Tuesday of the month).
