To qualify for entry into the $100 DEDP course price coupon lottery for a specific DEDP semester, you must have an annual income of less than $10,000 USD, you must submit current financial documents to verify your income through the MicroMasters Portal, and your documents and Personal Price must be approved before the deadline—typically one week before the Payment Deadline for the DEDP semester. For more information, please refer to the FAQ article How do I enter the lottery for a $100 DEDP course price coupon?
Unfortunately, due to constraints, we are not able to offer the $100 USD course pricing to everyone who qualifies. Learners with an annual income of less than $10,000 USD who are not offered the $100 course price coupon may choose to pay $250 USD to take the exam during that semester, or they may choose to wait to take the exam in a future semester and enter the lottery again.
Please note all learners are always welcome to complete any or all DEDP courses on the audit track and pay to take the Proctored Exams in a future semester. Once you earn a passing score in a DEDP Online Course, you will not be required to retake the course after making your payment in order to sit for the Proctored Exam.
