This page lists all GED and HiSET test centers and prep locations in and around Lebanon. If you want to earn your high school equivalency diploma in New Hampshire, you need to pass the five subtests of the HiSET exam or the four sub-exams that make up the GED test.
The GED® and HiSET® tests are available online and at state-certified New Hampshire test facilities.
The assessments are for adults who left high school prematurely. This way, they have the opportunity to acquire an equivalent degree.
Testing takes place at a level similar to that of graduating HS students.
There are four independent, modular GED sub-exams that measure a candidate’s knowledge and skills in these subject areas:
- Social Studies
- Mathematical Reasoning
- Reasoning through Language Arts
The HiSET® comes with five subtests in Language Writing, Language Reading, Math, Social Studies, and Science.
All over America, the diploma that’s awarded upon successful completion of the New Hamshire GED or HiSET exam is accepted in the same way as a standard high school diploma by schools and employers.
In New Hampshire, both exams are available in a paper-and-pencil format and on a computer. Be aware, though, that paper-based GED testing is far more expensive than computer-based testing. New Hampshire is the only US state that offers the GED on paper.
In the past, online GED and HiSET testing was not possible. You had to come to one of New Hampshire’s official test centers and sit for the exams in person.
Well, this situation has now changed with the introduction of the online proctored (OP) GED test and the HiSET-AT-Home exam. Check the bottom of this post for information about online GED and HiSET testing.

Introducing Online HiSET and GED
In the past, if you wanted to sit for the New Hampshire GED or HiSET test, you were required to show up in person, at an official state-approved testing center and pass the four GED or five HiSET modules. Online testing was simply not offered.
Now, with the launch of online testing options, all that has changed. If you want to learn more about the online proctored GED test, check out this page, and to learn all about the HiSET-at-Home test, go to this post: Launching the online HiSET test.
Your GED test scores are calibrated on a scale from 100 to 200. On each of the four GED subtests, the passing score is 145. There’s no averaging! The passing score ranges are:
- 145-164: high school equivalent scores
- 165-174: college-ready scores
- 175-200: college-ready PLUS up to 10 college credits
On the HiSET exam, you are required to attain at least a score of 8 points (out of 20) on each of the 5 HiSET subject tests. Your essay score must be at least 2 out of 6. Additionally, your total score cannot be less than 45 (so out of a possible 100), excluding your essay.
The GED and HiSET exams measure the level of your career and college readiness knowledge and skills. The GED (General Education Development) exam includes four tests, but the HiSET has two separate literacy tests, so five in total.
Research shows evidence that students who have demonstrated fluency and proficiency in the knowledge and skills measured at the GED or HiSET exam are better prepared for academic education in college and for their future careers. Graduates no longer hold merely a high school equivalency credential; they have a roadmap for future success.
The GED and HiSET exams are elements of critical importance in our nation’s educational system and for our economy.
For individuals who didn’t complete high school, it is a credential that leads to better employment and qualifies for a continuation of their education at a college, trade/vocational school, or university.
