When you set your course pricing, you have the option to limit the amount of days that new sign ups will have access to your course. This is a great way to manage active student numbers if you are on our Pro Plan plus Growth package!
About This Feature
When an enrollment duration is set, any students who enroll in your course through the Thinkific checkout will automatically lose access to your course after the amount of days specified in your enrollment duration settings.
You can set enrollment duration by number of days. For example; if your enrollment duration is 30 days and a student enrolls on Jan 1st, they will automatically lose access to the course on Jan 31st.
Enrollment duration is optional and set at a per price level. This means you can apply an enrollment duration for your primary course price as well as any additional prices for your course. If there is no enrollment duration set for your price, any students who enroll will have unlimited access to your course.
