How do I close or deactivate my Course Hero account?

If you’re looking to cancel your subscription, follow these steps:


Otherwise, to deactivate your free account:

  1. Log in to Course Hero and click on your profile picture icon located in the top-right corner.
  2. Select Account Settings and then click the Deactivate Account button.
  3. Once you click, you’ll see a pop-up window asking you to confirm that you'd like to deactivate. Once you confirm, you’ll be immediately logged out of Course Hero.

Please note: Deactivating your account is not an option if you currently have an active paid membership. That said, you can cancel your recurring subscription so that your next payment will not occur. Once your Premier Membership ends, follow the steps above to deactivate your free account. If you’ve deactivated your account and would like to re-enable it, please contact us by clicking Contact Us below.
