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 high school equivalency diploma.
HiSET testing is available online and at certified Missouri HiSET test centers.
The assessment 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 exam has five tests covering 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.
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.
