After you pass a "for credit" course and meet the requirements for credit, you have up to one year to purchase academic credit on edx.org.
After you purchase academic credit, you must complete the credit process at the credit-issuing college or university.
Note: More than one organization might offer credit for the same course. If this is the case, you select the organization that you want when you purchase credit for the course.
To purchase academic credit
- On your dashboard, select Purchase Credit next to the course that you want.
- On the Checkout page, verify that the organization that you want to purchase credit from appears, and then select Checkout or Checkout with PayPal.
- Follow the instructions to complete the payment process. When the payment process is complete, a confirmation page opens, and you receive an email message.
- On the payment confirmation page, select Complete Credit to go to the credit-issuing organization’s website to complete the credit process.
Note: After you purchase academic credit, you must contact the issuing college or university to complete the credit process. This process usually includes receiving the official notice of academic credit, such as a transcript.
