Completing the Credit Process

After you have purchased academic credit on, you must complete the credit process at the credit-issuing organization. For example, you must contact the issuing college or university to receive its official notice of academic credit, such as a transcript.

To complete the credit process:

  • Immediately after you purchase credit on, select Complete Credit on the payment confirmation page to go to the organization’s website.
  • At any time after purchasing credit on, select Get Credit from the course card on your edX dashboard to go to the organization’s website.

Note: After the organization has evaluated your information, a message on your dashboard indicates whether the organization has granted you academic credit for the course and provides a link to the organization. You also receive an email that indicates whether you have received academic credit for the course.

For answers to questions about receiving academic credit for the course, you can directly contact the organization that issues the credit.
