Set up your Coursera account

To start taking classes on Coursera, you'll need to set up an account.

To make a Coursera account:

  1. Go to
  2. At the top of the page, click Sign up.
  3. Choose whether you want to provide a name, email, and password or link your Coursera account to your Facebook profile, Google account or Apple ID. 

If you choose to create a new Coursera account with a name, email, and password, your password needs to be 8 characters or longer.

Once you create your account, you can change your account settings any time.

If you're part of a Learning Program on Coursera, you can set up an account through the invitation to that Learning Program.
