HiSet Testing

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education selected a new high school equivalency test that replaced the GED starting January 2014. Missouri's current high school equivalency test was developed by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and is called the HiSET®. 

The HiSET®​ exam consists of five subtests (content areas): Math, Science, Social Studies, Reading, and Writing. The cost for each subtest is $17.75 ($10.75 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. 

The total cost for all five tests will be $98.75.

Fee per Subtest (five subtests x $10.75) = $53.75
Testing Center Fee (five subtests x $7) = $35.00
Annual State Administration Fee = $10.00

St. Louis Community College proctors the HiSET® exam at the Forest Park and Florissant Valley campuses. For more information, test preparation, creating your account and scheduling go to www.hiset.ets.org.
