As a student, you may need to change your course, level of study, or other education information within Handshake.
While some institutions allow students to update these fields directly in the system, others don't.
To determine if you are able to change your Education Information in Handshake, follow the steps below.
1. Click your account icon in the upper-right corner of the screen, then click My Profile.
2. Click on your institution's name, located under the Education section of your profile.
3. A list of fields will expand under the selected institution.
- Institution Name
- Level of Study
- Secondary Education
- Further Education
- Postdoctoral Researcher
- Non-Degree Seeking
- Time Period
- Start Date
- End Date
Once the Level of Study is selected, a list of additional fields will populate. Only fields that are relevant to the selected Level of Study will be available.
- Area of Study
If any of the fields are greyed out — that means the field is locked and you won't be able to edit the information. You'll need to notify your career services department of the change you'd like to make.
4. Make the desired update in Handshake, then click the green button Save in the lower right corner.
