The Thomas Dunn Learning Center HiSET Prep Program is designed to meet the needs of those who did not finish high school, but need state-issued high school equivalency credentials to move forward in a career field, join the military, begin a training program, or continue their education. Without a high school diploma, life choices and opportunities can be limited. Passing this exam will prove that you have the same academic skills as a high school graduate, and allow you to move your life in a whole new direction. 

 TDLC's HiSET prep program is open to all Missouri residents and our instructor, tutors, and staff are ready to help you succeed. The state of Missouri does not have any test preparation or instruction requirements to take the initial test, but TDLC established this program to help test takers overcome the barriers to passing the exam. Once you pass the exam, your high school equivalency credentials will be acceptable in every state - not just Missouri. 

You must be at least 16 years of age and out of high school to take the HiSET exam. If you are 16 years of age, you must also have completed at least 16 units toward high school graduation. You must be a resident of Missouri to take the HiSET exam in Missouri, because other states have different guidelines. 

There are two HiSET Test Centers near the Thomas Dunn Learning Center. On the day of the test, you must show identification at the test center. A valid permanent or temporary Missouri license (Driver, Non-driver, Intermediate, Commercial or Instruction (learners) permit), U.S. passport, or U.S. military ID. The HiSET Test Center will not accept outdated or expired identification.
