Q. Do you offer any Group Discounts or Course Packages?
A. Yes, we offer both. Groups of two or more who sign up together for the same course qualify for discounts of 20% off the course fee after one student has purchased the course at full price (in other words, it's full price for the first person and 20% off for each additional person).

For information on discounted Course Packages, see our Macro Programs.
