Below are a few of the most frequently asked questions about our subscription plans.
What are the limitations of the basic account?
With a basic account, you can use Vocabulary.com yourself to learn words using the different activities we offer. Since Vocabulary.com is adaptive, we have seen people of all ages make use of the website. Additionally, you can use our dictionary to look up and learn specific words, browse our list library curated content, make your own vocabulary lists using our list maker, and create Vocabulary Jams.
A basic account can be used for free for an unlimited amount of time. The limitations include not being able to create classes, assign work, or see student data.

Do you offer monthly subscriptions?
Unfortunately, we do not offer monthly subscriptions at this time.
What happens if I go over my plan limit?
Students who try to join your classes will be placed on a waiting list. You will receive notification that you have students waiting to join your classes. If you decide to upgrade, you can easily add any students on the waiting list to your classes. You'll never lose any data and can always see all information for students who join your classes at a later time.
Why can't I select a smaller plan?
You may only select a plan that accommodates the number of students in your classes. If you'd like to select a smaller plan (and that option is disabled), you may choose to remove some students from your classes and then complete the change to your subscription.
Can I change my plan?
You may change your plan at any time. If you are upgrading your subscription, we will charge your credit card for the full price of the new plan and we will issue a credit for the unused portion of your old plan. If you are moving to a smaller plan, we will switch you to the new plan at the end of your billing period.

Can I cancel my subscription?
You may cancel your subscription at any time from the My Account page. When you cancel your subscription, you will maintain access to your classes through the end of your billing period. At the end of your billing period, we will not charge your credit card and you will no longer have access to reports for your classes.
What if my school or district decides to purchase?
Simply accept the invitation from your school's administrator by clicking on the invitation link. We will not charge your credit card again for your individual subscription once you join your school or district's subscription.
