Even though edX has requested for permissions to provide their courses to students in certain countries and regions, the licenses they have obtained from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) do not allow them to offer this course in these places. edX regrets that the restrictions imposed by the United States prevent them from offering all of their courses globally.
