About HEP

As part of a region steeped in a tradition of agriculture, Northern New Mexico College is proud to offer migrant and seasonal farm workers support and resources to earn their General Education Diplomas. Through its federally funded High School Equivalency Program, Northern provides up to 100 qualifying students with high quality GED instruction, books and supplies, college and career advice and a weekly stipend.

Northern is also committed to preparing students for life after a GED, whether it be going to college or entering the workforce.
