HiSET Program

It's a new test that can be taken in sections.

New Assessment Replaces GED® in MO

Please note: On January 2, 2014, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) begin using the High School Equivalency Test  (HiSET), developed by Education Testing Services (ETS), as its high school equivalency test. This test replaced the GED®, (which expired at the end of 2013).
The University City Adult Education and Literacy Program will assist you with HiSET preparation and more.  We offer a variety of tools to help students decide which higher education and/or employment options best fit your life’s goals.  Students learn computer skills, including basic computer usage and Internet research.  We assist you as you prepare for your next steps after obtaining your HiSET Certification!
By deciding to get your HiSET Certification, you will have taken a big step toward improving your life and achieving your goals.  You are joining many people who realize that continuing their education as an adult can increase your opportunities in the work place, open doors to higher education and possibly increase your income and quality of life.

The HiSET®​ exam consists of five subtests (content areas):  Math, Science, Social Studies, Reading, and Writing. The cost for each subtest is $17 ($10 to purchase the subtest and $7 to cover the cost of administering the subtest at a testing center). Beginning with the purchase of your first subtest, there is also a $10 state registration fee payable once every 12 months.  You can purchase any number of different subtests at the same time. You will receive two retests for each subtest you purchase.  If you need to retake a subtest, you pay only the  $7 test center fee. For more information on fees, go HERE.
