This post lists all GED® (in Missouri: HiSET®) prep classes and testing facilities in the Columbia, Missouri area. In Missouri, you’ll need to pass the HiSET to earn your HSE (high school equivalency) diploma.
HiSET testing is available online and at certified Missouri HiSET test centers.
The HSE program gives people who never graduated high school the opportunity to obtain an equivalent degree.
The HiSET assesses knowledge and skills at the level that high school seniors are expected to understand upon graduation.
The HiSET exam has five tests on the subject areas of writing, reading, social studies, math, and science that may, if you wish, be taken separately.
HiSET testing can be done on a computer or in a paper-based format.
HiSET testing is now free for first-time testers in Missouri.

It doesn’t matter when you left school.
Missouri passed legislation that allows the standard HiSET fee of $98.75 to be waived for first-time testers.
In the past, test-takers looking to earn their high school equivalency diploma in Missouri were required to show up in person at one of the state’s designated testing centers. Well, all of this has changed with the arrival of an online HiSET testing option. Learn more below.
