Refund policies

If you decide not to complete a course or Specialization that you've paid for, Coursera may be able to refund your payment depending on our refund policies.

You can read our refund policies in full in Coursera's Terms of Use.

Refunds after free trials

If you start a free trial, the free trial begins before you are first charged, so there are no payments to be refunded. You can't get a refund for any payments made after your free trial ends.

In most cases, if you pay for a Course Certificate, you can request a refund within 2 weeks (14 days) after your payment.

If you pay for a Course Certificate when pre-enrolling for a course that isn’t available yet, your two-week refund period begins on the start date of the first session of the course.

Once you have earned your Course Certificate, you are no longer eligible for a refund, even if you earn your Certificate within the two-week refund period.

If you pay by course for a Specialization, the refund policies for course payments apply to each course payment you make.

If you pre-pay for a Specialization, you can request a full refund up to two weeks after your payment date.

If you pre-enroll and pay before the first session of the first course in the Specialization begins, you can request a refund up to two weeks after the listed start date of the first session of the first course.

You cannot get a refund for a Specialization pre-payment if you've already earned a Course Certificate for any course in the Specialization, even if you earn your Certificate within two weeks.

Partial refunds

Unfortunately, we are not able to offer partial refunds for Specialization pre-payments. If you aren't sure you'll want to complete the entire Specialization, we recommend you pay by course.

Because all subscriptions begin with free trials, you can't get a refund for a payment made on a subscription after the free trial ends.

If you don't want to pay for a subscription anymore, you can cancel the subscription. There are no partial refunds for subscriptions, so you'll need to cancel before your next payment date.

 

If you pay for something on Coursera, but your payment information goes through a different website, you may be using a third party marketplace.

When you purchase a Course or Specialization Certificate through a third-party marketplace, that third party marketplace's refund policy applies unless explicitly stated by Coursera.

For example, to request a refund for a Course or Specialization Certificate you purchased through Apple's app store, you'll need to reach out to Apple.

If you start a free trial, the free trial begins before you are first charged, so there are no payments to be refunded. You can't get a refund for any payments made after your free trial ends.
