This article lists all GED and HiSET class locations in and around Albuquerque. New Mexico is using two options for high school equivalency testing, the GED and the HiSET exams.
Both exams can be taken in an online format or at state-approved test facilities.
The exams give adults who didn’t graduate high school an extra option to earn an equivalent degree.
Testing occurs at a level comparable to that of graduating HS students.
While the GED® is fully computer-formatted, is the HiSET® available in a paper- and a computer-based version.
The GED exam includes four individual tests in literacy, math, science, and social studies that can be completed one test at a time.
The HiSET has five tests (Literacy has individual writing and reading tests) that can be taken separately as well.
In the past, online HiSET or GED testing was not an option. Test-takers needed to show up at an official New Mexico HSE testing site.
This has changed recently, however, with the introduction of online proctored HiSET and GED testing options. Read more at the bottom of this post.

Online GED and HiSET options
Taking the HiSET or GED exam in an online format was, until recently, not possible. You needed to show up, in person, at one of New Mexico’s official HSE test centers. Now, however, with the arrival of online GED and HiSET test-taking options, this has changed.
To learn all about the newly launched online HiSET-Exam-At-Home option, you can visit this page: ‘The online HiSET test welcomed,’ and if you want to read all about the online proctored GED test, check out this page: ‘Introducing the online GED exam.’
