To schedule HiSET, the High School Equivalency Test at MAC, you must first register with ETS (Educational Testing Service). The exam consists of five sub-tests. The cost for each sub-test is $17.75 ($10.75 for sub-test plus $7 to cover the cost of administering sub-test at a testing center). There is also a $10 state fee payable once every 12 months. The total cost for all five tests will be $98.75. Because the exam is given in sections, you will not have to complete the entire test at one time. If you do not pass the test the first time, you can retake the entire test or any of the test sections two more times within the 12-month period after paying an additional $7 per sub-test fee. You can create an account and register for testing at https://hse.mo.gov.

To meet the needs of test takers who can't test at a test center because of public health concerns or testing center closures, ETS is offering the HiSET® Exam at Home option. With the at home option, you can take any of the five subtests that make up the HiSET exam on your own computer at home or in another secure location.
Each subtest delivered at home has the same content, format and on-screen experience as the test you would take at a test center. Your at home appointment will be monitored by a human proctor online through ProctorU®.
