Enroll in a course

To take a course on Coursera, you'll need to choose an option and enroll. 

Note:  If you're in a degree or learning program, there are different steps for enrollment.

Steps to enroll

To enroll in a course:

  1. Open the course information page by clicking on the course title.
  2. Click Enroll.
  3. Choose an option.
  4. Read all instructions and follow any prompts you receive.

Once you’re enrolled, you can start taking a course at any time. If you come back to a course after a break, you may need to reset your assignment deadlines.

See courses you're enrolled in

Once you’re enrolled in a course, you’ll see it on your Coursera home page while logged in. Click In Progress or Completed to see all of the courses in those categories.

If you enroll in a paid option for any course in a Specialization, you'll see all courses in the Specialization on your Coursera home page even if you haven't enrolled in or paid for them.

Completing a course

After completing a paid course, you won’t have access to the course’s paid content after that payment expires. You’ll retain access to the free version of the course, which includes downloading videos and transcripts.

After completing a free course, you’ll have access to the same course content that you did during the course.

Retake a course

If you need to retake a course, any progress you've made carries over. You can’t reset progress in a course, but some quizzes and assignments will allow you to retake them. We’ll save your highest grade.

If you have an issue with a grade on an assignment you can’t retake, reach out to your instructor to request an override.
