High School Diploma

It is commonly misunderstood that individuals who pass the GED™ exam earn a “GED.” In Maryland, an adult over the age of 17 who passes the GED™ exam earns a Maryland High School Diploma issued by the Department of Labor Licensing and Regulation.

The State of Maryland also awards a Maryland High School Diploma to individuals who complete the National External Diploma Program (NEDP), which is also offered at SBLC.
