🥜 In a nutshell:

Our courses run within six-week cohorts starting every Wednesday. You have to meet a deadline to qualify for a certificate, and you can track your deadline via your course dashboard and email reminders ensuring you don't miss it.

At EntryLevel, we aim to provide a structured and effective learning experience for all our students. To ensure that you make the most out of our courses, it's important to be aware of the deadlines and timeframes associated with our courses. Here’s a detailed guide on what you need to know about course deadlines and how to manage them effectively.

What is the course structure and duration?

Our courses run in weekly cohorts, starting every Wednesday. They are designed to be completed within a six-week timeframe. This structure helps create a collaborative learning environment where you can progress together with peers and support each other throughout the course.

When is your start date?

When you purchase a course, your start date will be the next Wednesday following your purchase. If you enroll on a Wednesday, you start date is same day. Either way, you can start immediately. This system ensures a smooth onboarding process and allows you to dive right into your learning journey without unnecessary delays.

Can you still complete a course and earn a certificate after the deadline?

To successfully complete the course and earn your certificate, you must meet the cohort deadline within the six-week period. Staying on track with these deadlines is crucial for maximizing your learning experience and achieving your educational goals.

Are extensions possible for a missed deadline?

We understand that life can be unpredictable, and sometimes you might need extra time to complete your coursework. Extensions are available if you are unable to complete your course before the deadline. If you encounter circumstances that significantly impact your ability to meet deadlines, you can get an extension.

Special considerations for extensions

  • If you are in a single course, you can extend your deadline once for a week, two weeks, or six weeks.

  • If you are on a subscription plan, you will have unlimited extensions.

  • For extensions beyond the above, we will offer special considerations on a case-by-case basis to ensure fairness and support for all students.

Where to find deadline information for tracking progress

To help you stay on top of your deadlines and progress, you can find all relevant deadline information on your learning platform under "How it works", customized to your local time zone. This feature allows you to keep track of important dates, monitor your progress, and plan your study schedule effectively. Additionally, we send out email reminders for important dates and events, so you don’t miss anything critical.

Benefits of meeting deadlines

Meeting course deadlines offers several benefits:

  • Structured learning: Following a set schedule helps create a structured learning path, making it easier to absorb and retain information.

  • Peer support: By studying together with a cohort of peers, you can collaborate and engage effectively, helping you get the best out of the learning experience.

  • Motivation and momentum: Keeping up with deadlines helps maintain your motivation and momentum, driving you towards successful course completion and closer to your career goals.

By understanding and adhering to your cohort deadline, you can make the most out of your learning experience with EntryLevel. If you need further assistance with meeting a deadline or after missing your deadline, please reach out to support.
