Enroll for Academic Credit

Some edX courses allow you to purchase academic credit that you can apply toward a degree at a college or university. When a course offers academic credit, you see a Credit-Eligible indication for the course in the edX list of courses.

To receive academic credit for a course, you must enroll in the verified track for the course.

After you meet the course requirements, you have one year after the course ends to purchase academic credit on edX.org.

Note: To be eligible for academic credit, you must complete the photo ID verification process. If you choose not to complete ID verification at any time, you are no longer eligible to receive academic credit for the course. However, you can still receive a verified certificate in the course.
