How much do edX courses cost?

Written by Pat Bowden last updated on June 13th, 2018

Looking for a listing of EdX courses?

Most edX courses are available to audit for free but certificates are not available without paying.


Individual courses, Professional Certificate courses, MicroMasters and XSeries cost varying amounts. Prices are available in the table on the right hand side of the edX information page about each course or series of courses. You can find an explanation of the different types of qualification here: https://www.class-central.com/report/edx-professional-certificate/


Students who are unable to pay can apply for financial aid: https://support.edx.org/hc/en-us/sections/115004147627-Financial-Assistance
