DEDP Webinar Recording

On May 16, the DEDP team hosted a webinar to help learners prepare for summer courses. The team gave an overview of the program and answered questions live in this one-hour event. If you missed the event or if you'd like to rewatch it, you can access the Zoom recording here.

Grading Policy Update

Starting in the spring term of 2023, proctored exams will be worth 70% of the total course grade (rather than 60%). All other coursework will now be worth 30% of the total course grade:

Total Course Grade = (70% * Proctored Exam Score) + (30% * All Other Coursework)

However, learners will no longer have to pass the proctored exam to earn a course certificate. As before, the passing grade for every course is 50%.

MicroMasters Scholarships

We are excited to announce new scholarships for learners in different regions of the world! Please review the scholarship applications for the more information about the scholarships and eligibility requirements. The deadline to apply for a scholarship for the summer term is June 6, 2023.

Proctored Exams

Learners who submit payment for a DEDP course must now sit for that course’s proctored exam in the same semester that they submitted payment. If you’re not sure about your status, please email us at You can review the proctored exam policies in more detail on the Proctored Exams page.
