Can someone who didn't study in the US get their GED here?

My mom, born in Mexico, has lived in the US for ~30 years and became a US citizen a few years ago. Now that my brother and I have flown the coop (coup -sp?) I want to convince her to get her GED now that she has some spare time and is looking for a new job.
So my big question is, can she, a middle school drop out (secundaria, she never went to la preparatoria) get her GED here in the States? I'm not worried about her capability to learn/pick things up, I'm concerned about paperwork, will they ask for high school enrollment things or anything of the sort?
Anyone ever done this? Let me know of your own personal experiences! Any setbacks that anyone knows about this situation?
Thanks in advance!
