HiSET™ replaces GED®


Jefferson City, MO- Lincoln University serves as a testing facility for a new high school equivalency exam.  The university now offers the HiSET™ program, which was adopted by the state of Missouri in January 2014.  The HiSET will replace the GED®. 

The HiSET was developed by Educational Testing Service (ETS).  The exam offers more accessibility and affordability to test takers, which includes free test prep and two free retests within a 12 month period.  There are five subtests of the HiSET: Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. 

Missouri is currently one of ten states to offer the HiSET.  Those wishing to test in Missouri should meet the following requirements: must be a Missouri resident; must be at least 16 years old and have completed at least 16 units toward high school graduation; and must present proper identification on test day such as a valid driver license, U.S. passport or U.S. military ID. Requirements for test takers may vary slightly by state.
