High School Equivalency Program

The High School Equivalency Program

The High School Equivalency Program (HEP) is an academic program designed to meet the special needs of migrant and seasonal farm workers in pursuit of the GED diploma.  The intent of the HEP Program is to assist these students in preparation and successful completion of GED exams.  HEP will provide assistance for placement in universities, colleges, junior colleges, vocational institutions, military services, other post-secondary activities or career positions.  HEP is funded by the U.S. Department of Education.

Mission Statement

The Mission of the High School Equivalency Program at UTEP is to provide opportunities for academic achievement, self improvement, and personal growth among migrant and seasonal farm workers who have not earned a secondary-school diploma. HEP prepares program participants to successfully complete the General Education Development (GED) exam and to gear students for career advancement that will maximize their potential for achievement.
