Pay for the course yourself

You can buy the full course at any point during the free module.

Note. The free introductory section must be completed before beginning the paid program. Because course topics are opened sequentially, paid tasks are available only after completing the introductory section.

You can pay for the course by bank card in one lump sum or by making monthly payments. If you choose monthly payments, you will need to transfer the first payment from your card. We will link the card to your account and every 30 days we will debit another payment. One payment is made for each month of training provided for in the course plan. Academic leave does not affect the number of payments.

Example. The Data analyst course lasts six months, with six monthly payments. If you take academic leave and study for seven months total, there will still be just six payments.

To pay for the course:

  1. On the course page, click Buy the full program.
  2. Select the one-time or monthly payment option and click Proceed to payment.

  3. Fill out the form and make sure everything is correct. Click Next and enter your card info.

When payment goes through, the start date for your course is shown in your account.

The transferred funds are credited to your virtual account. Money is then debited from your account daily from the day your group begins. If you decide to leave the course early, we'll refund the amount for the remaining days.

Refunds

If you decide to leave the course early, we'll refund your money. However, if the course already started, you have to pay for the days you studied.

Calculating your refund

Once you pay for the course, the money is transferred to your virtual account and the payment page shows the start date for your group. That same day, we enroll you in the course, invite you to Slack, and grant you access to the course and support team. The cost of the course is evenly distributed across its duration and money is debited from your account daily once your group begins.

Example. Let's say you paid for the Web developer course and entered the group starting on May 28. You decide to quit the course on July 15. The full course lasts 304 days and costs $2000. Money was debited from your account starting May 28, so you need to pay for 49 days. Here's how your refund is calculated:

Daily rate: $2000 / 304 days = $6.60

Tuition from May 28 to July 15: $6.60 * 49 days = $323.40

Refund amount: $2000 - $323.40 = $1676.60

Refunds may take up to 30 calendar days, during which time we stop debiting money from your account and prepare the amount to be refunded. If you need additional documents, we can provide them.
