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 from August through March. Students must attend two 4-hour 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 4-hour sessions to complete enrollment. 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 made up of 5 subject area tests which are scheduled separately. It is administered every business day in the St. Charles Community College Assessment Center according to appointments created on the HiSET® website at http://hiset.ets.org/take/schedule. When you have passed all 5 subject area tests, you will receive a certificate of High School Equivalence from the Missouri Department of Education. The total cost for all 5 subject area tests is $95. Test retakes are available for a small fee. Test results appear in your account on the HiSET® website within 3-10 business days. Please see website for more information. http://hiset.ets.org/take/fees/
