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

High School Equivalency (HSE) classes are available for Missouri residents who are 17 or older and not enrolled in high school. Classes meet twice per week for 3 hours. You must complete registration (see below) before you attend class. Classes meet from August through May. We enroll new students each month from August to March.

ELIGIBILITY: To register, students must be at least 17 years old, not enrolled in high school, must have a Missouri address, and must not be in the U.S. on an F-1 (student) Visa.
17-year-olds recently unenrolled from high school should bring a drop letter from the school to registration.

PLEASE NOTE: Children are not permitted in Adult Education registration or class sessions.

Limited Exceptions for 16-Year-Olds
  • Public school students who have earned 16 high school credits must provide two documents to enroll:
    • 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 at least 1000 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.

HSE Registration

In-person HSE registration sessions are held at St. Charles Community College’s main campus in Cottleville, at the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt building in Troy, and at the Missouri University Extension Center in Warrenton (details below).

Students must attend one registration session for orientation and initial assessment testing to determine HiSET® readiness prior to class attendance. This initial assessment provides information for an individual learning plan. You do not need an appointment to attend registration, but you must be on time and complete the full session to be enrolled into a class. Early arrival is encouraged. HiSET classes will be offered both face-to-face and virtually, subject to availability.
