  1. Open the page for the Specialization you want to enroll in.
  2. Click Enroll.
  3. Choose the payment options you want. 

Payment options

If you're enrolling through a Specialization landing page, you'll see two enrollment options: Pre-pay and Pay by course.

When you pre-pay for the Specialization:

  • You'll be enrolled in the Specialization as well as in all courses in the Specialization.
  • You'll get a pre-pay discount. You'll pay less than you would for each course separately.
  • You'll be able to choose a session start date for each course as you progress.
  • You don't need to take all the courses at once, and you can take a break between courses.
  • You'll earn a Course Certificate for each course in the Specialization.
  • You'll earn a Specialization Certificate when you complete the Specialization.

When you pay by course for the Specialization:

  • You will automatically be enrolled in the first course of the Specialization.
  • You'll need to enroll in and pay for other courses in the Specialization separately.
  • You won't be able enroll in the other courses at a bulk discount, even if you decide to complete the entire Specialization. 
  • If you don't want to pay for more courses in the Specialization, you'll need to unenroll from the Specialization.

To apply for financial aid for a Specialization, choose the pay by course option.

If you pay for a course in a Specialization from that course’s page, not through the Specialization:

  • You'll be enrolled in the individual course you selected.
  • You'll see other courses in that Specialization on your Enrollments page.
  • You'll need to enroll in and pay for other courses in the Specialization separately.

Unenroll from a Specialization

If you decide not to complete a Specialization, you can unenroll.

When you unenroll from a Specialization:

  • If you have subscribed, your subscription will not be canceled when you unenroll. You’ll need to cancel your subscription if you want monthly payments to stop.
  • You will still be enrolled in any courses that you enrolled in separately for a Course Certificate. Work you've completed in those courses will be saved.
  • You will be unenrolled from courses that you enrolled in through the Specialization. Work you've completed in those courses will not be saved.
  • You will keep any Course Certificates that you already earned from courses in the Specialization.

To unenroll from a Specialization:
