Frequently Asked Questions
When will I have access to the lectures and assignments?
Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:
- The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.
- The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.
What will I get if I purchase the Certificate?
When you purchase a Certificate you get access to all course materials, including graded assignments. Upon completing the course, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.
What is the refund policy?
You will be eligible for a full refund until two weeks after your payment date, or (for courses that have just launched) until two weeks after the first session of the course begins, whichever is later. You cannot receive a refund once you’ve earned a Course Certificate, even if you complete the course within the two-week refund period. See our full refund policy.
Is financial aid available?
Yes, Coursera provides financial aid to learners who cannot afford the fee. Apply for it by clicking on the Financial Aid link beneath the "Enroll" button on the left. You’ll be prompted to complete an application and will be notified if you are approved. Learn more.
What can I expect from this course?
We will use short videos, readings, quizzes, reflection questions, and forums to digest, retain, and act on what you will learn. Most importantly, this course offers 3 different tracks from which learners can choose:
Audit Track: You will have access to all the videos, readings, reflection questions and discussion forums. This will allow you to master basic course concepts. Passing the graded quizzes is not required.
Certificate Track: In addition to the learning elements in the audit track, you will need to pass the graded quizzes in order to earn the certificate. The quizzes will allow you to test your mastery and understanding of the course knowledge.
Honors Track with Recognition Certificate: In addition to everything in the Certificate track, there are additional readings and three small peer-reviewed projects. In these projects you will be asked to:
1.Describe a business in renewable energy or green building
2.Identify 2-3 problems to solve in these sectors
3. Summarize your new business using the 1-page template
Will I receive a transcript from Duke University for completing this course?
No. Completion of a Coursera course does not earn you academic credit from Duke; therefore, Duke is not able to provide you with a university transcript. However, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile.
