Preguntas frecuentes

  • Unfortunately, learners from one or more of the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this program: Iran, Cuba and the Crimea region of Ukraine.  While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this program in all locations.  EdX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
