Yes, you can begin one or more DEDP courses and submit payment later. While all MicroMasters courses allow learners to enroll on the Audit track and submit payment before the Verification Deadline for the course, the unique structure of the DEDP program means that you are also welcome to entirely complete one or more DEDP courses for free, on the Audit track, and submit payment during a future semester to become eligible to sit for the Proctored Exam and earn the MicroMasters Course Certificate!
Passing scores achieved on the audit track will be saved on your program record and will qualify you to take the Proctored Exam once you make your payment in a future DEDP semester.
You will not be required to retake a course that you have passed after you make your payment.
Please note: You must submit payment for a course before the payment deadline of the semester in which you intend to take the Proctored Exam. If you submit payment for a course after the payment deadline you will not be eligible to sit for that course's Proctored Exam until the next semester in which it is available.
Please refer to the Upcoming Dates page to see the relevant dates for payment and documentation.
