No. Learners who have previously earned one or more DEDP Course Certificates or the DEDP Program Credential will continue to be able to access their DEDP Program Record, Course Certificates, and Program Credential via the MicroMasters Dashboard.
Learners who successfully complete a DEDP course and its Proctored Exam on the MITx Online platform will continue to be awarded a MicroMasters Course Certificate, and learners who successfully earn all of the required Course Certificates will continue to be awarded the MicroMasters Program Credential in Data, Economics, and Development Policy. Learners completing courses or the program on the new MITx Online platform will receive the same certificates and credentials as all previous DEDP learners.
