National External Diploma Program (NEDP)


2021 Online Information Sessions will be held on Thursdays at 5:30 pm. Contact to sign up for an information session.


The National External Diploma Program (NEDP) provides a unique way for adults to earn a high school diploma. It is a computer-based high school diploma program for adults who have acquired their academic skills through life and work experiences. Students work independently while maintaining weekly appointments with a certified NEDP advisor/assessor.

The program measures academic and life skills, such as Reading, Critical Thinking, Oral Communications, Mathematics, Writing, Self-Awareness, Consumer Awareness, Occupational Awareness, Scientific Awareness, and Social Awareness.

The goal of this program is to help those candidates in need of a high school diploma, but choose not to go through the traditional credit diploma classes or the GED® program. The NEDP is recommended for those at least 21 years of age.

This program is free to students who live or work in Ansonia, Derby, Monroe, Seymour, or Shelton.
