You can also find the Upgrade button on the right side of the course homepage inside of the course to access the checkout page.
Note: If these buttons aren't available, then the upgrade deadline of your course has already passed or this course does not offer certificates.

Do I have to upgrade at the beginning?
You're welcome to begin a course in the audit track, then upgrade to the verified track soon after the course begins. We recommend upgrading as soon as possible so you can access the graded assignments needed to progress towards earning a certificate.
To find the specific deadline for your course, go to the course Home page, and then locate Upgrade to Verified Certificate under Important Dates.
