What does pausing my account do?

If you have a Premier Membership* and aren't currently using Course Hero, we allow you to pause your membership and use your remaining time at a later date. This is especially helpful when you've already paid for an annual membership but are out of school for vacation. This way, you can use your membership when you actually need it.


To pause your membership, go to your Account Settings and then click on the Pause Membership button to place a hold on unused Premier Membership days. You can pause for 1, 2, or 3 months. Kindly note that you may only pause your account once every 30 days.


*Subscriptions purchased through the Google Play Store or through Apples’ iTunes are not able to be paused or downgraded.
