Join a learning program

If you've been invited to join your company's learning program, you’ll either get:

  • An email invitation
  • A direct link from your administrator

When you set up your Coursera account, you'll need to use the same email that your program admin sent your invitation to.

Use a Coursera account you already have

If you already have a Coursera account, you'll need to ask your program administrator to send an invitation to the email address you're already using for Coursera. This will allow you to keep all your Course Certificates in one account even if you leave your company's learning program. If you create two different Coursera accounts with two different email addresses, you won't be able to combine them later.

Missing email invitations

If you're missing an email invitation to join your company's learning program, ask your program administrator to send you another invitation email.

Single Sign-on

Some companies use single sign-on, or SSO, to connect with Coursera. This lets you make a new account or connect an existing Coursera account to your company’s learning program. Make sure you use the same email account to login each time through SSO. For example, if you have an alias email that has been connected to the account instead of, you'll need to use the same one every time. You can check to see what email address is associated with your Coursera account on your Account Settings page.
