On this page, we list all GED® (in Missouri: HiSET)® prep class locations in the Kansas City, Missouri region. In Missouri, you must pass the HiSET® exam if you want to earn your high school equivalency (HSE) diploma.
The HiSET exam can be taken online or at one of Missouri’s designated HiSET testing facilities. Learn more about the ‘HiSET-At-Home’ exam at the bottom of this page.
HSE testing provides adults who never graduated high school one more opportunity to obtain an equivalent degree.
The HiSET measures knowledge at the level of graduating high school seniors.
There are five subtests that make up the HiSET exam. Testing is done in science, writing, reading, math, and social studies.
The HiSET (short for High School Equivalency Test) is offered in a computerized format and on paper.
First-time HiSET test-takers can take the test for free in Missouri. The state passed legislation that waives the testing fee (98,75) for first-time applicants.
