School settings are a way for you to setup and maintain your institution's preferences in Handshake. Changes made to the school settings will affect your entire institution, so you should use caution when updating them.
Some pages require special permissions (designated by staff roles) in order to update settings, so if you do not have expected access, please reach out to your team's Handshake administrator to request access.
To navigate to the school settings, click on your name in the upper-right corner of Handshake, then click on School Settings.
We recommend that you complete the school settings in the order designated below. Items are linked, so you can click on each item to see more specific information.
