Since January 2014, the High School Equivalency Certificate issued by the NH Department of Education is based on the HiSET , a new high school equivalency test.
HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) is published by ETS. For more information, visit their website at hiset.ets.org.
Unlike the GED, HISET allows test takers to choose between paper based or computer based testing. The cost is $125 (effective January 1, 2019). Like other high school equivalency tests, the HISET is aligned to the College and Career Readiness Standards.
Exeter Adult Education continues to offer high school equivalency instruction and testing as we have for many years with the GED.

NH Adult Education High School Equivalency Information
"While adult education provides so much more than just the high school equivalency, it is certainly a milestone to celebrate. Studies show that 47% of high school equivalency recipients go on to higher ed and have a 90% persistence rate. Adult ed learners have grit and determination. They are fighting for a better future for themselves and their families!"
