High School Equivalency Preparation and Testing (HiSET)

Free HiSET classes provide preparation for high school equivalency testing, as well as basic instruction in reading, writing and math.

HSE Preparation

On-site HSE classes are available for Missouri residents who are 17 or older and not enrolled in high school. Limited exceptions for 16 year olds:

  • Public school students who have earned 16 high school credits must bring two documents to enrollment:
    • A letter from the school that includes the date the student dropped out.
    • A transcript or other official verification from the school that the student has successfully completed 16 credits of high school work.
  • Homeschooled students who have 1600 hours of high school level home education must meet the requirements of 167.031 RSMo for course instruction and have written permission of the parent or legal guardian indicating compliance.

Enrollment for HSE classes is scheduled monthly. Students must attend two enrollment sessions for orientation and an initial assessment test to determine HiSET readiness. This assessment provides information for an individual learning plan. Students work at their own pace. Students must commit themselves to attend two full class meetings per week.

HSE Class Schedule

Enrollment is done on a walk-in basis. You must attend both sessions. Please arrive early for the first session. Bring a pen, pencil, spiral notebook and a 2-pocket folder with you. For more information about any of these classes, call 636-922-8411 or email smugler@stchas.edu.

Students can also prepare for the HiSET online at http://www.molearns.com. Students working online are required to complete an initial skills assessment in a physical HSE preparation classroom. Following this assessment, students work online. They must return to the physical classroom for post-testing when appropriate. The HiSET test is not available online. However, the test can be taken on computer in the SCC Assessment Center.

The HiSET website provides a free practice test for each of the 5 subject area tests. To take advantage of this free resource, visit http://hiset.ets.org/prepare/overview

HiSET Testing

As of Jan. 2, 2014, the test of High School Equivalency in Missouri is the HiSET.

To register for the High School Equivalency Test (HiSET), go to www.hiset.ets.org. The HiSET is a computer-based test. Registration is online, but the test must be taken on a computer at a certified testing center. The HiSET test is administered every business day in the St. Charles Community College Assessment Center. Registration and testing for the full battery of 5 subject area tests is $95. http://hiset.ets.org/requirements/mo Once your registration fee is paid, you have 12 months to complete all 5 tests. Within that 12-month period, test retakes are available for a small fee. Test results appear in your account on the HiSET website within 3-10 business days. Students have the option to register and pay for each test separately, but the fees will be higher. Please see website for more information. http://hiset.ets.org/take/fees/
