National External Diploma Program

No test required to get your Maryland High School Diploma!

The National External Diploma Program (NEDP) is a competency-based, applied performance assessment system that expects adults to demonstrate their abilities in a series of web-based units that draw from work and life experience. Participants need to be self-directed learners who take responsibility for their own learning by using existing resources.

  • Participants complete eight web-based units with 100% accuracy in: Cultural Literacy, Health Literacy, Civic Literacy & Community Participation, Consumer Awareness & Financial Literacy (2 parts), 21st Century Workplace, Geography & History Literacy, and Science Literacy.
  • Participants complete their work on the computer at home, library, etc. and at the NEDP site.
  • Weekly appointments to the NEDP office are required.
  • Participants are given 15 months to complete the program.
  • Program Fee: $200 – paid in installments
  • Computer skills required: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint
  • Non-teaching program, must have 10th grade reading, writing, and math skills to qualify.
  • Individual Skill required: current or former job verification, certificate/license from a training program

If you are interested in the NEDP, please contact the office at 410-625-4215 to schedule an information session and reading and math assessment. Additional information can be found at www.nedp.org.
