I am going abroad to study for my Master's program and I believe I can't do work on upwork during my study. So I was wondering if there is any way I can temporarily close my account? Such that it retains my profile feedback ,rating and job success score?
I don't want to lose my 5 star profile, so can anyone give any suggestion what I should do because I can't work on upwork while I study for 2 years...
Thank you so much for your time.

It depends where you are going to study!
Unless you are either going to the USA on a student visa, or one of a handful of sanctioned countries, there is no reason why you should not work on Upwork as far as upwork is concerned.
No, you can't, just set the estimated date.
I know you would not lose your 5 stars, but don’t know what would happened to JS.
Maybe a moderator can help. Can JS drop due to inactivity?
Hi Mirza Nasir,
Instead of closing your account, I suggest you complete any current jobs you may have and set your profile as "Not Available" and private. That way your profile will not show in search and if a client that saved your profile sends you an invite you are not able to reply to, it will not count against your responsiveness score.
