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.

With the generous support of many community leaders, we are repairing and replacing 92 windows, 4 roofs, some masonry, and upgrading mechanical systems. Our crews are working diligently and plan to complete the project by the end of September.
