The $100 DEDP Course Price Coupon is a link that will set the course price for one pre-determined course to $100 USD. After the coupon is applied by clicking the link, you will be able to pay $100 for one attempt for the proctored exam for that course. Because the $100 personalized price tier is no longer offered, this is the only way to receive the $100 course price for any course.
Each semester the winners of the $100 Course Price Coupon Lottery will receive an email informing them that they have won and asking them to choose which course they would like a coupon for. Once a winner chooses a course, they cannot change their selection. When the coupon is applied, the price will be set to $100 for the selected course only.
- Winners must apply their coupon immediately, once received.
- To apply the coupon, simply click the link or copy the link into your browser address bar. When a winner clicks the link, the price for the course the winner selected previously will automatically change. The winner will then see on their MicroMasters dashboard that while their Personalized Course Price will still be $250 USD, the chosen course will have a price of $100 USD.
- The coupon will expire on the payment deadline of the semester in which it is received.
- Winners must click the coupon link in the email to apply the coupon. If you do not apply the coupon before the payment deadline, the coupon will expire. We cannot apply the coupon for you and we cannot reactivate expired coupons. Each $100 Course Price Coupon will be restricted to the chosen course. The payment deadline/expiration date will be less than a week after winners receive their coupons, so please apply your coupon as soon as you receive it.
- Applying the coupon does NOT pay for the course.
- Once the coupon has been applied, you will still need to make your payment to take the exam. You can make your payment by selecting the "Pay Now" button next to the course. Once you apply your coupon, the price for that course specifically will remain $100 until you make your payment. The applied coupon price will not expire. After you purchase your exam attempt, the coupon price will revert to your general personalized price.
- To take an exam, winners must pay $100 before the payment deadline.
- To sit for a proctored exam at the end of the semester in which the coupon was received, winners must also pay the $100 for the course before the payment deadline. Again, the payment deadline will be about 1 week after the coupon is received, so we strongly encourage winners to apply their coupons immediately and then make their payment immediately.
- If winners would prefer to sit for an exam during a future semester, they can wait to make their payment. Again, after the coupon is applied, the coupon price for that course will not expire. Payment must be submitted before the deadline of the semester in which you would like to sit for exams.
- Each DEDP course will be offered between one and three times per year. The Proctored Exam for each course will be available only at the end of the semesters during which that course was offered.
