In this post, you can find all HiSET (formerly: GED®) prep facilities and testing centers in the Independence area. In Missouri, you will have to pass the HiSET exam to earn a High school equivalency (HSE) diploma.
HSE testing gives individuals who did not graduate high school the chance to get hold of an equivalent degree.
The HiSET measures knowledge at a level similar to what students must have learned during four years in high school.
The HiSET includes five (if wished, separate) subtests that cover the fields of science, social studies, writing, reading, and math.
You can sit for the HiSET in a paper-based version or in a computer-based format.
Recently, Missouri decided to waive the HiSET testing fee of 98,75 to first-time test-takers.
In 2019, Missouri passed legislation to help first-time applicants by waiving the fee for them.
The HiSET exam is now also available via the internet. To learn more, check the bottom of this page.

Online proctored HiSET testing now possible
You never had the option to take either the GED or the HiSET exam online. There have been some major changes recently, though. You can now sit for the five HiSET subtests in an online format where a proctor will check whether your test-taking activities are in line with the strict regulations. If you want to learn more about this ‘HiSET-Exam-At-Home’ online option, check out this page: HiSET testing now also available online.
