What is the time commitment involved in taking a course?

Students should expect to spend about 16 hours (roughly 4 hours per week) on coursework. Courses are taught asynchronously, meaning you will complete assignments and participate in discussions on your own time.

Will I receive a grade?
All MuseumDev courses are pass/fail. Grading criteria will be set by individual instructors.

Will I receive a certificate of completion?
Passing students will receive a certificate of completion shortly after the course is completed.

How long will I have access to the course website?
As long as we’re in business.

When can I enroll?
As soon as you see a course listed on our website up until the third day of class. If a class does not meet minimum enrollment by the first day of class, it may be cancelled or rescheduled.

What if my course is cancelled due to low enrollment?
You will receive a credit for another course that is valid for one year, and can request a full refund at any time before the credit expires.

Can I drop a course?
You can drop a course and receive a credit for another course or a full refund until the third day of class. From day 3 - 7, you can receive a credit/refund minus a $50 drop fee. After one week, no credits/refunds will be issued.
