Enrollment Periods

2020-21 Micro-Credential Enrollment Periods 

There are three (3) enrollment periods in which to apply for micro-credentials per calendar year. The current and upcoming enrollment periods are the following: 

  • CURRENT CYCLE: Opened on September 1, 2020, closes on December 20, 2020. All application materials must be submitted by December 30 to earn a micro-credential in this cycle
  • Next cycle: January 1 –  May 12, 2021

Micro-credential applications can be initiated at any point during an enrollment period. The application submission fee is $60 per micro-credential. A micro-credential application initiated within a particular period must be finished and submitted within that same enrollment period. At the end of each enrollment period, un-submitted micro-credential applications will be removed from the system.  Individuals may begin new applications in new enrollment period. 

In special cases and by advanced request, an applicant may carry over an un-submitted application into the next enrollment period, but the movement will be subject to an application renewal fee of $60. Such requests should be made before the end of the enrollment period and directed to credential@compact.org.
