More Information About Course Bundles

Course bundles provide a significant discount compared with purchasing courses individually and as such we cannot discount the price of an individual course from a bundle. If you have further questions, please contact customer service.

You can start a course any time you’d like, and take as long as you need to complete it. You can purchase a course now, and start the lessons when you are ready. When you’ve completed the course you can continue to revisit the content as often as you’d like.

Each course has an estimated number of hours to complete but you are free to “go at your own pace.” There is no time limit to start or finish them. You can take as long, or as little, as you need to complete it. You can revisit the course content as often as you’d like, even after you complete the course.

Bird Academy offers its online students the opportunity to earn Continuing Education Units. CEUs are available for any course on Bird Academy by purchasing them for an additional per-course fee. The CEUs you purchase through Bird Academy will be issued by Cornell University’s Continuing Education office in the form of a digital certificate. The number of CEUs that can be earned for each Bird Academy vary by course and are listed on the individual course pages. Please note that CEUs are not the same thing as academic credits from Cornell.
