In this post, you can find all GED® (in Missouri HiSET®) prep facilities and test sites in the Hannibal area. Missouri is using the HiSET for its HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.
Since recently, you may also take the HiSET exam in an online format. Read more below.
The HSE program is for adults who never completed high school. This way, they can earn a degree that’s equivalent to a common HS diploma.
The HiSET is available in both a paper-based and a computer-based version, while the latest edition of the GED test can only be done on a computer.
The HiSET exam contains five subject tests in the fields of English writing, English reading, math, science, and social studies.
For first-time testers, HiSET testing is free in Missouri.
In 2019, the state passed legislation that waives the testing cost ($98,75) for first-time applicants.

Introducing the online HiSET testing option
There was, until recently, no option to sit for the GED and HiSET exams in an online format. Well, that has changed. To learn more about the online proctored HiSET-At-Home testing option, check out this page: Introducing online HiSET testing. When taking the HiSET exam online, a proctor will guide you through the process and see if you do it all in accordance with the regulations.

HiSET price tag
A few years ago, Missouri’s Department of Elementary & Secondary Education switched from the GED to the HiSET exam for equivalency testing. The HiSET exam id developed by nonprofit organization ETS (Educational Testing Service).
The Missouri HiSET exam costs $17.75 per individual subject ($10.75 for the ETS fee and a $7 administration fee for the test center. Per subject test, test-takers get two retests at only the $7 testing center fee. Additionally, there is an annual $10 state fee to take the HiSET exam in Missouri that is collected once a year.
HiSET test-takers don’t need to complete the entire 5-test exam all at once. They have the option to take the five tests one (or more) at a time. If they don’t pass one of the sections the first time, they can retake that section twice within a 12-month period.
