Unfortunately, learners from the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this course: 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 their courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses they have received are not broad enough to allow them to offer this course in all locations. EdX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent them from offering all of their courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
