Enrollment Types

There are three enrollment types a Kadenze learner can choose when enrolling in a course: Audit, Certificate/Verified Statement, and Credit Eligible.


Basic access to a course. You'll be able to watch session videos, view coursework (unless the course is in Adaptive mode), participate in the forums, and view/download any and all course and session resources. Both Free and Premium members can enroll in a course as an auditor. Premium members may choose to audit if they're not interested in completing coursework and receiving a grade or Certificate/Statement.

Certification/Verified Statement

Full access to a course. This track enables you to do everything auditors can do, plus submit assignments, receive grades, collaborate with peers, build a portfolio, earn a Verified Certificate of Accomplishment, and receive discounts on course materials. This track is only available for Premium members.

Credit Eligible

Credit Eligible enrollment is available to Premium members for certain courses: use the Credit Eligible filter on the Browse Courses page to see which ones are offered for credit. This credit is actual college credit granted by the offering institution, so check with your registrar to make sure they'll transfer credit from the offering school. Some courses may have additional coursework or other requirements for credit eligible, but this track is otherwise the same as the Certification track.
