In order to enroll in DEDP courses, submit payment for DEDP courses, enroll in DEDP Proctored Exams, and earn the MicroMasters Program Credential in DEDP, learners must maintain two linked accounts.
MITx Online Account
To enroll in DEDP courses, you must possess an MITx Online account. DEDP courses are now offered only on the MITx Online platform, and you will access both your online courses and their Proctored Exams via the MITx Online Dashboard.
MicroMasters Portal Account
To submit payment for DEDP courses and sit for DEDP Proctored Exams in order to earn the MicroMasters Course Certificates and the Program Credential, you must possess a MicroMasters Portal Account. Your MicroMasters Portal Dashboard is the tool you will use to calculate your Personal Course Price and submit payment for courses, and will also store your Paid status, the highest score you earn for the online courses and Proctored Exams, your certificates and credential, and other information.
How to Set Up your Accounts
If you are a new DEDP learner, please refer to the FAQ article I am a new learner. How do I enroll in the DEDP MicroMasters program? If you are an existing DEDP learner, and you previously completed and/or submitted payment for one or more DEDP courses on the edX platform, please refer to the FAQ article, instead.
Additional Important Details
Because the DEDP MicroMasters program uses a special Personalized Pricing and payment system, all DEDP program information, except for the course content itself, is stored on the MicroMasters Portal Dashboard only. Please note that your MITx Online Dashboard will not be able to indicate the Paid status of your DEDP courses. This is identical to the situation on the previous platform, edX. Your DEDP courses on MITx Online will report that "You are enrolled in the audit track for this course. The audit track does not include a certificate" even if you have paid for the course—this is expected.
In order to check the Paid status for your DEDP courses, you must visit your MicroMasters Portal Dashboard. This is also the only location from which you may submit payment for DEDP courses. As long as your payment is reflected on the MicroMasters Portal Dashboard, you will have all the benefits of paid enrollment and you will receive your course certificates and program credential when you pass the courses and proctored exams.
