If I launch A techdegree program, will my progress in my tracks be erased and will I have to start over?

I want to get certified in front end dev and I'm already a few courses in on the basic plan. But I want to make sure that all my progress is saved before I upgrade to a techdegree,

I can confirm that your progress will not be erased if you choose to dive into a Techdegree! I started mine in January and all my progress is still intact across the board. :sparkles:

Patrick Vanegas -- what Jennifer Nordell says :) You just join the Techdegree and all of your points, badges, course completions come along with you.

Thanks, Dave! Also, are the projects given during the techdegree program unique (meaning, not the same projects that are done in the videos)?

Patrick Vanegas — yes! The 12 projects are unique portfolio-worthy projects specific to each Techdegree.
