We strongly recommend that you submit your income and financial documentation to enter the $100 course price coupon lottery as soon as possible, in order to help the DEDP team ensure that your information is verified in a timely manner and ensure that your eligibility for the lottery can be confirmed.
You may find Information for all DEDP deadlines on the DEDP Upcoming Dates page. The "$100 Course Price Coupon Lottery Documents Deadline" for a given DEDP semester is the latest date when we can guarantee that the DEDP team will be able to process your documents in time for you to be entered into that semester's $100 course price coupon lottery. The lottery documents deadline is typically about two weeks before the Payment Deadline for a DEDP semester.
While the DEDP team works very hard to ensure that all learners' documents are reviewed, Personal Prices are approved, and eligible learners are entered into the lottery, we cannot make exceptions to the deadline. If you submit your documentation after the Deadline, you will not be entered into the $100 Course Price Coupon Lottery for that semester. You will need to wait until the next DEDP semester.
Additionally, even if you submit your documents before the Deadline, if there are problems with your documentation, or they do not match your submitted income, you may need to resubmit documents, and if the $100 Course Price Coupon Lottery closes before these issues are corrected, we will not be able to enter you into that semester's lottery—you will need to wait for the next DEDP semester's lottery, instead. Please submit your documentation as soon as you are able to!
Even if you submit your financial documentation after the deadline and are not to be entered into the lottery for a given DEDP semester, you will still be able to take the Online Course during that semester. And, as long as your Personal Price is approved before the Payment Deadline for that semester, you may pay the non-lottery price, if you are able to, in order to become eligible to sit for the Proctored Exam at the end of the semester.
However, if you do not submit payment for a course, once the Payment Deadline for a DEDP semester has passed, you will no longer be eligible to sit for the Proctored Exam at the end of that DEDP semester. You will instead need to wait for a future DEDP semester in which that course is offered to sit for the Proctored Exam.
Please Note: If you have been entered into the $100 course price coupon lottery and won a coupon, you must apply your coupon before the payment deadline for the semester in which you received it or your coupon will expire. We cannot replace expired coupons.
