    Hi mohand​,


    Thank you for contacting the Udacity Student Support team! We appreciate your patience.


    Please be informed that your current AWS usage stands at $25.56 (consumed budget) out of $25.00.  

    We recommend closing the console and the instances when not in use to ensure that you don't run over your available budget. 

    Please also make sure to choose the correct cluster size (size of each node in the cluster) along with the type of EC2 instance. Kindly reach out to the mentor over Knowledge to understand what all instances are required while performing tasks on the AWS console.


    If you need instructions on how to navigate Knowledge, please refer to our Help Center articles here.

    You need to make sure that you have an adequate budget available to complete your project/task. If you hit your budget, your session will time out and your work will be lost and unrecoverable.

    Udacity will not provide additional credits. In case you exhaust your credits:

    • You will lose your progress on the AWS console.
    • You will have to use your personal AWS account to finish the remaining ND.
