I am enrolled in a specialization and auditing one of the courses. I want to upgrade and pay for the specialization but it asks me if I want to use the university sponsorship (with just a “continue” option, so I cannot decline).
The sponsorship is only for one course, so I don’t want to use it now since I will be paying for all the specialization anyway (and plan to finish within a month).
Is this possible?
Thanks in advance!

Thank you for your reply Saheli. Unfortunately it does not solve the issue.
I was already in that option. But since both accounts are connected it still appears.
The pop-up says:
Enroll with Learning Programs
Join just this course through your XXXX University on Coursera's sponsorship. As a member of the XXXX University on Coursera Learning Program, you can upgrade to the full Specialization at any time.
In that case, you can take the single course from the specialization and pay for the individual courses in the subsequent enrolments.
Because when you enroll in a course that is part of a Specialization ,you are automatically enrolled in that Specialization.
Another option is that, you can take any single course that fits your requirements and/or interests. Then move on to purchase the entire Specialization.
Enroll in a single course in a Specialization
Some Coursera courses are part of Specializations, a series of related courses designed to help you master a specific topic.
You can take individual courses in a Specialization without having to complete the entire Specialization. You will get a Course Certificate for every individual course you complete, whether or not you finish the rest of the Specialization.
If the courses allow you to pay individually, you can pay for each course you want to take without paying for the entire Specialization. If the Specialization requires a subscription, you can subscribe to the Specialization, take as many courses as you want in that Specialization, then cancel your subscription. You will still earn Course Certificates for the individual courses you finish.
If you still need help with a technical or accessibility issue, you can email here.

Hope this helps.
Please let me know whether this issue is solved .
