How to Edit Education Information on Your Profile

Shannon Hittson -

As a student, you may need to change your major, GPA, school year, or other education information within Handshake. Some schools have restricted these fields to be updated only by the automatic student data feed from the registrar's office. Other schools allow students to update these fields directly in the system. To determine if you are able to change your primary education information:

1. Select the drop down menu under your name and choose View Profile

2. Hover to the right of Primary Education and a pencil icon will appear. Select this pencil.

3. A list of fields will expand under Education - if any of the fields are a dark gray, that marks a locked field and you will not be able to edit that value. For example, the below student is able to edit all fields, GPA and major are called out with boxes in the picture below. Make your necessary updates and click save in the bottom right corner.

4. If you cannot make any updates to these fields, notify your career services department of the change.

    It says I’m attending Utah State University and majoring in elementary education when I’m actually going to Dixie State University and doing General Education. How can I change that?
