GED Classes Saint Louis, Missouri

Posted here are all GED® (in Missouri: HiSET®) prep classes and testing sites in the Saint Louis region. Missouri uses the HiSET for HSE (high school equivalency) testing.

The HiSET can be taken at certified testing centers or in an online format as we recently saw the launch of the HiSET-At-Home exam. Learn more at the bottom of this post.

We recommend the Online GED Program from Onsego. It’s Simple, Fast & Easy. Onsego Provides Everything You Need To Get Your GED. Learn More.

The HiSET program gives adults who never finished high school the chance to earn an equivalent credential.

Testing is done at a level similar to what HS seniors must command upon graduation.

The HiSET exam includes five tests in the subject areas of Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies.

HiSET testing can be done on paper and in a computer-based format and the subtests may be taken individually.

First-time test-takers can now sit for the HiSET exam for free in Missouri.

The state passed legislation that waives the regular HiSET testing fee of 98,75 for first-time test-takers!
