COURSERA REFERRAL PROGRAM TERMS
Last Updated: March 11, 2021
Anyone may be a referrer in the Program (“Advocate”) so long as (a) you are a legal resident of the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia, or the Republic of India; (b) you are the age of majority in your state/jurisdiction/country of permanent residence; and (c) you have a Coursera account in good standing. The Program is void elsewhere and where prohibited. Employees, officers and directors of Coursera, along with businesses, corporations or other entities of any kind, are not eligible to participate in the Program.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE AND REDEEM REWARD
To participate in the Program as an Advocate, you must refer a colleague, friend, or family member who is a faculty member, staff, or administrator employed by a different higher education post-secondary institution than the Advocate that has not previously launched a Coursera for Campus Basic instance who is a legal resident of the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia, or the Republic of India (“Friend”). In addition, to qualify as a Friend, the higher education post-secondary institution that employs your colleague, friend or family member must not be located in Cuba, Sudan, North Korea, Iran, Syria, Crimea region of Ukraine, or Venezuela. Advocates may make referrals by logging into his or her Coursera account, navigating to https://www.coursera.org/campus/basic-referral, and following the on-screen instructions to refer Friends in one of two ways:
- Advocate enters his or her Friends’ names and email addresses in the relevant fields, and then Coursera or its contractor or agent sends an email to such Friends on the Advocate’s behalf that contains the Advocate’s unique referral link (“Referral Link”); or
- Advocate copies his or her Referral Link and shares it with Friends via the Advocate’s personal communication channels, such as email or social media; such message is referred to herein as a “Referral Message.” In each Referral Message, Advocate must clearly explain that he or she will receive a reward for each Friend that makes signs up for and launches a Coursera for Campus Basic instance using the Referral Link. Failure to make this disclosure is a violation of these Terms and may result in your immediate termination from the Program, disqualification from future participation, and forfeiture of any reward owed to you as a result of your participation in the Program.
If a Friend applies for the Coursera for Campus Basic plan, the Advocate who referred such Friend will receive access to two (2) separate, stand-alone courses from a collection of courses chosen by Coursera (“Eligible Content”) that must be redeemed by June 30, 2021 or within two weeks of the conclusion of this Program, whichever is later. Once redeemed, the courses must be completed within 180 days. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Advocate Rewards may only be applied to a new purchase of Eligible Content.
TERMS OF REDEEMING REWARD
Advocate Rewards (collectively the “Rewards” and each, a “Reward”) cannot be sold, transferred, or redeemed for cash, and they may not be combined with other offers, promotions or discounts.
Limit: Ten (10) Reward redemptions per Advocate, per year.
If an Advocate earns more than one Advocate Reward, the Advocate may only redeem one Advocate Reward per purchase. An Advocate Reward cannot be used in conjunction with any other Advocate Reward.
Rewards are subject to verification. Coursera reserves the right to delay or refuse to issue a Reward for reasons that Coursera may deem relevant, such as noncompliance with the Terms or any deceptive behavior.
PROHIBITION ON BULK DISTRIBUTION (“SPAM”)
An Advocate’s Referral Link may not be shared, sold, or used in any way except to obtain Advocate Reward(s), and it must be used only for personal and non-commercial purposes.
If an Advocate sends a Referral Message, such Advocate is considered the actual sender of the Referral Message and must comply with all applicable laws and regulations (collectively, “Relevant Laws”), including without limitation the CAN-SPAM Act. Referral Messages must be created and distributed in a personal, non-commercial manner that is appropriate and customary for communications with friends and family members. By sending a Referral Message, the Advocate represents that he or she has the appropriate permission and consent to send such a Referral Message to his or her Friend(s). Bulk distribution of Referral Messages, distribution to strangers, or any other conduct that is contrary to these Terms or to the spirit of the Program is expressly prohibited and may be grounds for immediate termination and further legal action. Advocates who do not comply with the Relevant Laws are obligated to indemnify Coursera and its parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, representatives, consultants, contractors, website providers, and their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives, and agents against any liabilities, costs and expenses it incurs as a result of such non-compliance with Relevant Laws.
Exploiting the Program or assisting others to exploit the Program is strictly prohibited, and will result in disqualification from the Program. Advocates cannot refer themselves or create multiple, fictitious or fake accounts with Coursera. In addition, Advocates and Friends may not (i) use the Program to violate any law, infringe or violate the rights of any third party, or otherwise act in a manner that is deemed unfair, disruptive, harassing, harmful, illegal, hateful, obscene or outside the spirit and intent of the Program; (ii) tamper with the Program; (iii) collect or harvest any personally identifiable information from the Program or associated website(s); or (iv) use any system, bot or other device or artifice to participate or receive any benefit in the Program. CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE PROGRAM MAY BE IN VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS. SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, COURSERA RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK REMEDIES AND DAMAGES (INCLUDING ATTORNEY FEES) TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW, INCLUDING CRIMINAL PROSECUTION.

The Program is offered at the discretion of Coursera, and Coursera reserves the right to terminate, suspend, or modify the Program, these Terms, the Rewards, conditions of participation, or any other aspect of the Program, in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice, even though such changes may affect Rewards already earned.
