This post lists all GED® (in Missouri: HiSET) prep classes and testing facilities in the Columbia area. In Missouri, you’ll need to pass the HiSET to earn your HSE (high school equivalency) diploma.
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.
Missouri passed legislation that allows the standard HiSET fee of $98.75 to be waived for first-time testers.
Online HiSET testing is now also available. Learn more below.
