JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Show-Me state is doing away the standard GED program and going with a computer-based program called HiSet.

According to The Columbia Missourian, Missouri is transitioning from the GED to HiSet this month, and it might be a little more expensive for Missourians.

Previously it cost 4-dollars to take the GED. Tim Robbins, Missouri adult education official, says the most affordable way to take the HiSet is to pay 95-dollars for the five-test battery. Test takers get two free retests within a 12-month period, and ten of those dollars goes to the state to administer the program.
