National External High School Diploma Program® (NEDP)
This is a Maryland State approved method to earn a high school diploma. To qualify, you must be age 18 or older and demonstrate high school level skills through a prescreening process. Since many adults have acquired their high school level abilities through work, family, and community experiences, NEDP® allows adults to demonstrate their skills by applying their life experiences in real-life situations. Participants work toward their Maryland State high school diploma by demonstrating reading, writing, speaking, mathematics, problem-solving, and critical thinking academic skills through the performance of real-life tasks. The tasks are in a Web-based format, so computer and Internet access is required. An entry-level job skill must also be demonstrated by each participant.

Because this program was designed especially for adults, it is:
• Self-Paced
• Confidential
• Conducted weekly through one-on-one appointments with trained assessor
• A combination of Web-based, at home assignments and Web-based written and oral assessments at center locations
Cost: $200.00 *Partially Grant Funded

Locations:
CCBC Essex
Business, Education & Social Sciences Hall, Room 100

CCBC Catonsville
