This Coursera for Campus Agreement (“Agreement”) is entered into as of the date you click the “Accept Terms” button, or other equivalent button, indicating your acceptance of these terms (the “Effective Date”) between Coursera, Inc., with a place of business at 381 E. Evelyn Ave., Mountain View, CA 94041 (“Coursera”), and the entity agreeing to these terms (“Organization”). There shall be no force or effect to any different terms of any related purchase order or registration form even if signed by the parties after the date hereof. If you are accepting on behalf of your employer or another entity, you represent and warrant that: (a) you have full legal authority to bind your employer, or the applicable entity, to these terms and conditions; (b) you have read and understand this Agreement; and (c) you agree, on behalf of the party that you represent, to this Agreement. If you do not have the legal authority to bind your employer or the applicable entity, please do not click the applicable acceptance button (or, if applicable, do not sign this Agreement). This Agreement governs Organization’s access to and use of the Services (as defined below). Coursera reserves the right to update, change or replace any part of this Agreement by posting updates and/or changes to this Agreement. Your continued use and access of Coursera services following the posting of any changes constitutes acceptance of those changes.



a. As of the Launch Date (as defined herein), Coursera grants to Organization and its users (“Users”) a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable right to access and use the User Services and Content Services (collectively, “Services”) subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement. It is intended that Users are registered students, faculty and staff of Organization. “User Services” means (i) customized landing page featuring the Organization logo and selected courses, (ii) User engagement reports, (iii) payment solution(s) that allow Users to seamlessly access premium course experiences and skip checkout, and (iv) enterprise-level User support. “Content Services” means access to Coursera’s Course, Specialization, and/or Guided Projects certificate service, including access to Course assessments and grades, for certain massive online open content offerings to be mutually agreed upon in writing by Coursera and Organization. “Courses”, “Specializations” means courses and specializations from the world’s leading universities and instructors, for consumption via the proprietary platform developed by Coursera (“Platform”). “Guided Projects” (previously called Rhyme Projects) means a type of learning project hosted and consumed on the Coursera Platform incorporating hands-on follow-along learner functionality paired with simultaneous video instruction. “User License” means the right for a single User to access the Content Services for an unlimited number of Enrollments. “Enrollment” means registration to participate in a single Course, Specialization, or Guided Project, and such Enrollment shall be deemed used once a User registers for a Course and does not either (i) manually opt out or (ii) automatically unenrolled due to low activity, in both cases during the trial period. User Licenses are transferable among Users, provided however, Users will lose paid access to all then-enrolled Courses if they are not holding a User License (or other paid Enrollment) through completion of such Courses. If a Course or Specialization becomes unavailable prior to the end of the Term, Coursera may replace such Course or Specialization with a reasonable alternative Course or Specialization. The Courses and Specializations offered in the Coursera for Campus catalog are determined by such factors as availability, pricing, and other restrictions. “Launch Date” shall mean the date that Coursera gives “super administrator” access to Organization, which shall give Organization the ability to invite Users to access Content Services. “LMS Integration” shall mean that Coursera will configure the Coursera API’s data exchange to the specifications for Organization’s learning management system (“LMS”) to enable the LMS to sync with the Coursera APIs. “LMS Maintenance” for such LMS Integration shall include addressing defects and apparent bugs, release management, and guidance in setup and administration. Maintenance shall not include integration with a different LMS provider or additional development work that may be required as a result of Organization’s LMS customization or a significant LMS version release. The Parties will mutually agree on the scope of ongoing LMS maintenance.

b. If Organization has opted to (1) create a learning plan for its users, (2) implement Single Sign-On (“SSO”) or (3) request that Coursera integrate with its learning management system (“LMS”), Organization shall reasonably and timely provide Coursera with all requested materials, APIs, systems information, Course and/or Specialization choices, and any other cooperation necessary to allow the Platform to be implemented (including testing and debugging) on or before the Launch Date. For the avoidance of doubt, any access pursuant to the Grow with Google Offering may not, subject to Coursera’s sole discretion, include any of the options identified in this Section, and any agreement by the Parties to include such options shall be pursuant to separate written agreement between the Parties.

c. Coursera may, in accordance with Organization’s branding guidelines (if provided to Coursera), use Organization’s name and logo(s) to list Organization as a customer and create mutually acceptable case studies highlighting the relationship of the Parties. Coursera may identify Organization and provide the number of participating Organization Users to the creators and instructors of Courses and/or Specializations (“Course Creators”) accessed by Organization’s Users. Organization may, in accordance with Coursera’s branding guidelines (found here https://about.coursera.org/brand-guide), use Coursera’s name and logo(s) to promote this Agreement to their Users and on Organization’s campus, provided that Coursera reserves the right to withdraw such permission in Coursera’s sole discretion and request removal of Coursera’s branding features (including any and all logos) immediately upon request and in no case later than two (2) business days. In addition, the Parties may, subject to mutual agreement as to the specific content, issue joint publicity materials, including, but not limited to, press releases. Other than as set forth herein, neither Party will, without the prior written approval of the other Party, issue any public statements or promotional materials disclosing the existence of this Agreement or the performance of Services hereunder. Without limitation of the foregoing, Organization shall not engage in any misleading communications that might state or imply that any Course Creators endorse, support, or have partnered with Organization. Organization shall provide conspicuous notice to Users that completion of Courses or Specializations does not provide Users with academic credit from the Course Creators. Organization shall not use any logos or other branding elements of a Course Creator, provided that Organization may make factual statements about the availability of Courses and Specializations using plain text.

d. The Parties will cooperate to ensure each User’s compliance with Coursera’s user policies. Each Party will respect the confidentiality and privacy of such User data and operate in accordance with applicable law with respect to its use and handling of same. Organization agrees to implement and maintain technical and organizational measures and procedures to ensure an appropriate level of security for participants’ personal information, including protecting such personal information against the risks of accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure, dissemination or access.

e. The rights set out in Section 1(a) do not include the right to, and Organization will not (either directly or indirectly): (i) copy, sublicense, rent, lease, barter, swap, resell, or commercialize the Platform, Courses, or Specializations, in whole or in part; (ii) transfer, transmit, enable, or allow access to or use of the Platform, Courses, or Specializations, whether in whole or in part, by any means, to a third party; (iii) create external derivative works of the Platform, Courses, or Specializations; (iv) use the Platform, Courses, or Specializations in any manner that is fraudulent, deceptive, threatening, harassing, defamatory, unlawful, illegal, obscene, or otherwise objectionable in Coursera’s reasonable discretion; (v) “crawl,” “scrape,” “spider,” or otherwise copy or store any portion of the Platform, Courses, or Specializations for any purpose not contemplated under this Agreement (e.g., in order to mimic the functionality and/or output of the Platform, Courses, or Specializations, in whole or in part); (vi) disassemble, reverse engineer, decompile, or otherwise attempt to obtain the source code or underlying logic of any portion of the Platform, Courses, or Specializations; (vii) use the Platform, Courses, or Specializations as part of any machine learning or similar algorithmic activity; or (viii) publish or distribute the Platform, Courses, or Specializations, or materials derived from the Platform, Courses, or Specializations, to third parties.

If you reside in one of the following states, Coursera makes additional commitments that apply to you based on your residence:


Coursera agrees that, as per Cal. Edu. Code § 49073.1, commonly known as AB 1584:

(1) Pupil records generated as a result of participation in the Grow with Google certificate program offering (“Program”) on the Coursera platform shall be the property of and under the control of the local education agency. Provided that, consistent with the normal operations of the Coursera platform, students may convert their accounts to a personal account at the end of the Program or if the student leaves the Program prior to its end.

(2) Students shall maintain possession and control of their generated content and Coursera shall permit and assist pupils to transfer their pupil-generated content to a personal account at the end of the Program or if the student leaves the Program prior to its end.

(3) Coursera shall not use any information in the pupil record for any purpose other than required or specifically permitted for providing access to the Program on the Coursera platform. Coursera is prohibited from using personally identifiable information in pupil records to engage in targeted advertising.

(4) Students shall be permitted to review their personally identifiable information and correct any erroneous information through the Coursera platform. Parents or legal guardians requesting access to such information shall direct their request to the local education agency, which shall follow its current process for review. If deemed appropriate by the local education agency, it shall forward those requests to Coursera and Coursera shall correct the erroneous information.

(5) Coursera maintains a comprehensive information security policy that is aligned with customary industry standards and is designed to ensure the security and confidentiality of pupil records. As part of this policy, Coursera provides annual security and privacy training to certain employees that are deemed to be the “responsible individuals” required by California Education Code section 49073.1 in order to ensure the security and confidentiality of pupil records.

(6) In the event of a confirmed unauthorized disclosure of pupil records, Coursera will, in compliance with applicable laws, notify the eligible student and the local education agency, who will then notify the parent or legal guardian, using the local education agency’s current process and protocol for notification.

(7) Upon the deletion of a student account, pupil records will be deleted from Coursera databases in a reasonable amount of time in accordance with Coursera’s standard data deletion practices. In addition, Students can delete their account through the Coursera platform or by contacting Coursera directly. Once deletion is complete, the student will receive an email confirming that the account was deleted. The requirement for Coursera to eliminate pupil records set forth in this Section shall not apply to pupil-generated content if the pupil chooses to establish or maintain an account with Coursera for the purpose of storing that content as set forth in Section 2, above.

(8) Coursera shall comply with applicable provisions of the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and will not access or make any disclosures of student educational records to third parties without prior notice to and consent from the local education agency or as otherwise permitted by law.

(9) Coursera shall comply with all applicable requirements, including those under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and California Education Code Section 49073.1 regarding targeted advertising. Participants in the Program on the Coursera platform shall be opted out of marketing emails by default. Participants in the Program may receive communications from Google relating to their participation in the Program, including for example, automated reminders regarding their progress in the courses, said reminders being consistent with those generally provided to all learners taking such courses. For the avoidance of doubt, students will see recommendations to courses offered on the Coursera platform in a manner consistent with those shown to all other users of the platform. However, users will never see advertisements for content not offered on the Coursera platform.

(10) Coursera is permitted to use deidentified information, including aggregated deidentified information, for the following purposes: (i) to improve educational products, for adaptive learning purposes, and for customizing pupil learning; (ii) to demonstrate the effectiveness of Coursera’s products in the marketing of those products; (iii) for the development and improvement of educational sites, services, or applications; and (iv) other purposes consistent with the applicable requirements of FERPA, CCPA, and California Education Code Section 49073.1 and other applicable laws.
