Make Sure You Qualify

Do you meet the qualifications for the GED? Verify that you’re:

  • Officially withdrawn from high school
  • Not a recipient of a high school diploma
  • 18 years of age or older

If you’re at least 16, you may qualify for the GED® exam if you submit a permission form with parental consent and approval from your local school district. You do not have to be an official resident of New Mexico to take the GED® test.

Properly Prepare

Most students take two to three months to study for this exam. Enroll in prep classes to give yourself every advantage. Even though they’re not required, courses prepare you by thoroughly reviewing the subjects on the exam.

Budget for the Test

In New Mexico, it costs $80 to take the computer-based test at a local testing center. If you prefer to take the online exam on your own, the cost is $172.

Consider In-Person Classes

If you’re preparing to start classes, it’s worth comparing online and in-person options. Our in-person courses may be your best fit if you do better in a more traditional learning environment. Other benefits of taking these classes include:

  • Supportive staff

  • Encouragement

These centers also provide secure and quiet spaces to take the GED® test. Contact one near you for more information.
