Understanding Maximum Enrollment Time (MET)

What is Chegg Skills' Maximum Enrollment Time (MET) policy?

Chegg Skills' Maximum Enrollment Time (MET) policy allows some students additional time beyond their original program end date to use as needed to complete all requirements in their program. MET is not applicable to students enrolled in one of Chegg Skills' immersive programs. 

Students can view their program end date and program-specific MET policy in their Enrollment Agreement (EA) which is sent to & signed by all enrolled students prior to their start date. 

If you’re thinking about adding MET to your program, check out your individual EA for your personal enrollment information, so you have the specifics needed to make the right decision regarding your program and MET.


How is MET calculated?

MET is calculated by halving a program's duration and then adding that length to the original program duration. For example, if a Chegg Skills program’s duration is 30 weeks long, MET for that 30-week program is 15 weeks. In this example, adding MET to the program duration means that a student can remain enrolled while making progress for up to 45 weeks, if approved and/or needed, to complete all course requirements.


Are there any policy implications to adding MET to my program?

Before adding MET to your program, it's important to understand the impact it may have on your eligibility for Chegg Skills' Tuition Refund Policy (TRP). You can find more information on TRP in Chegg Skills' Course Catalog.  If you're eligible for TRP and you add MET to your program, you will become ineligible for TRP. Even if you're not eligible for TRP, you will still work directly with Chegg Skills' Careers Team upon graduation if it’s offered as part of your enrollment.

The goal of MET is to set students up for success in completing all program requirements. As each student's situation is unique, it’s encouraged to carefully consider the impact of adding MET within the context of TRP.


How does adding MET to my program affect my pacing?

A student’s program end date is the anchor of all due date logic in their dashboard. If you choose to add MET to your program, your program end date and all dashboard due dates will automatically update. Typically, students add MET to adjust their due dates and stay on track to complete all requirements. While adding MET can help you stay on track, it's important to remember that any additional MET is not infinite and should be applied strategically.


How can set myself up for success when adding MET to my program?

Adding MET to your program is one way to adjust your study schedule and get back on track. However, it's important to keep in mind that it's just one tool among many available to you as a Chegg Skills student. 

While MET can provide some relief and help you stay on pace, it's best to use it in conjunction with support from Chegg Skills' Student Success Team. The team can help you determine how much MET time to add, provide accountability, and create customized catch-up plans. By collaborating with the Student Success Team, you'll have a better chance of achieving your goals and succeeding in your program. Contact the
