How can I access this resource?
A limited number of Coursera enrollments are available for New Yorkers who qualify.
Coursera courses are provided through the NYS Department of Labor and are available at no-cost to unemployed and dislocated workers impacted by COVID-19.
A “dislocated worker” is someone who lost their job due to one of the following situations:
- You were terminated or laid off from your job, are eligible for Unemployment Insurance benefits, and are identified by us as unlikely to return to your previous industry or occupation.
- You lost your job as a result of a plant closing or substantial layoff.
- You have been unemployed for a long time and are unlikely to get another job in the same or similar occupation.
- You were self-employed and are unemployed due to general economic conditions or a natural disaster.
You may also be considered a dislocated worker if you have been away from the labor force for many years. For example: you were a full-time homemaker and you must now return to the labor force because you have lost your source of income.
You must also meet the following additional requirements to qualify for a Coursera enrollment:
- Live in New York City
- Are 18 years of age or older
