Switch to a different session

If you need more time to complete a course, you can switch to a later session.

Switch sessions

To switch sessions:

  1. Log into your Coursera account.
  2. Open your course dashboard to see a list of the courses you're enrolled in.
  3. Find the course you want to switch sessions in, then click the three dots in the top right corner to open the menu.
  4. Click Switch sessions.

If the new session hasn't started yet, you'll need to wait until the new start date to see and submit graded assignments.

Once you switch sessions, you will not have the option to switch back.

What happens when you switch sessions

When you switch sessions, you'll keep most of your completed work, including:

  • Your course progress. If you've passed an assignment in your current session, the assignment will remain passed in the new session.
  • Quizzes and programming assignments that have been graded. You'll see your previous submissions and scores in the new session.
  • Peer-graded assignments you've submitted but not passed. Any peer graded assignments you already submitted will move to the new session. Grades and feedback on those assignments will also move, so you won't need to submit them again.
    Peer-graded assignments you've passed. Any peer graded assignments that you already passed will move to the new session. Grades and feedback on those assignments will also move, so you won't need to submit them again.
  • Assignments you saved, but have not submitted. All your saved assignments will transfer to the new session as drafts.

Switching sessions means you will lose:

  • Discussion forums for the previous session. Each session has its own set of discussion forums. When you switch to a new session, you won't be able to see the previous session's forums and any posts you made there.
