Provides non-high school graduates with courses that prepare them to pass the national HiSet examination. Students can be either commuters or lodge students and have up to two trimesters to prepare for the official test.
During the two terms, students will be referred to a testing site for administration of the Official High School Equivalency examination. SIPI does not administer the official exam and is not an official testing site. Students are able to prepare using practice assessments authorized by the New Mexico Higher Education Department (NMHED).
The high school equivalency program provides preparation courses for successful completion of the national test. The test measures and compares knowledge of test takers to graduating high school seniors from across the United States.
Courses are in the following areas: English, literature, science, math and social science.
To pass the tests, students have to demonstrate skill levels that meet or exceed 60% of all graduating high school seniors.
