A few months ago, we were locked down in our rooms because of coronavirus. I used the time to enroll in a course on Coursera. Now I feel more confident about the next steps of my career because I know I have something valuable to offer to the companies that I will work with.

Free Coursera for University Students is available to current undergraduate, graduate, or recently graduated students with a verified college or university email address. This includes full-time, part-time, community college, and university students. To verify eligibility, we are using a database of publicly available college and university email domains, with new domains being added every day as students sign up and share information about additional domains. To gain access, sign up with your university or college-issued email address. For further assistance, visit this article in our Learner Help Center.
After you join the program, you’ll need to enroll in any of the included 3,800 courses, Guided Projects, Specializations and Professional Certificates by July 31, 2020. You'll then have free access to learn and earn certificates for your enrolled courses through September 30, 2020. After Sept. 30, 2020, you will continue to have free access to all Guided Projects on Coursera. If there are courses, Specializations, or Professional Certificates that you still want to complete, you can apply for financial aid or continue to access all the materials and courses by auditing the course.
Unfortunately, we are unable to verify email addresses from non-university domains such as Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo. If you do not have an email address with your university domain, please reach out to your university administration to get an email account issued. If we’re unable to recognize the university email domain that you’ve entered, you’ll be prompted to provide more information about your university. If we’re able to validate your status as a student with that information, you’ll receive an email notifying you of your eligibility. As you wait for your request to be processed, you can start learning with free courses for college students.
You may not be able to join if we weren’t able to validate your university-issued email address with our database, or if you’re a student at a Coursera partner institution that needs to approve access. Please fill out the form when you’re prompted during the enrollment flow and you’ll receive an email if we’re able to confirm your eligibility for the program. In the meantime, you can start learning with free courses for college students.
After enrolling in Free Coursera for University Students, your college or university may receive anonymized information about what you’re learning if university leaders are considering bringing Coursera to your institution through Coursera for Campus. If your college or university decides to participate in Coursera for Campus, your learning information from Free Coursera for University Students will be visible to the administrators from your college or university that are managing the Coursera for Campus program.
If you’re not eligible for this initiative, you can visit Coursera.org and sign up to take courses. There are several options for gaining access including free online courses during COVID-19. You can also audit courses for free or apply for financial aid. If you need technical support using Coursera, please visit our Learner Help Center for articles to commonly-asked questions. We appreciate your interest in Coursera and hope we can help you continue learning in these challenging times.
This offering is available to students around the world. We value our global community immensely and we deeply regret the need to withhold services from anyone in certain sanctioned regions in order to remain in compliance with U.S. law. Our team is continually exploring options to expand access and we hope one day to offer unrestricted access throughout the world. For more information, please go here.
Coursera does not offer placement services. With Coursera, you can learn about a wide range of topics and gain in-demand skills in business, data science, computer science, health, and more. In the Coursera Learner Outcomes Survey (2020), 87% of learners who completed a course on Coursera reported that they gained a career benefit such as launching a new career by taking a course on Coursera.
