You may not be able to attend an event that you previously registered for. Handshake offers the option to unregistered for an event that you will no longer be participating in.
Depending on how you registered for the event, follow the steps below to cancel your event registration.
- Directly in Handshake
- Through an employers external link
- if you're not sure how you registered, start with "Directly in Handshake"!
Directly in Handshake
If you registered for the event in Handshake, you can unregister for the event yourself.
1. Click Events in the upper-left corner of the Handshake homepage, to the right of Jobs.
2. All events and fairs posted to your school will load by default. Click the white button Registered in the upper-right corner of the Events Discovery page.
3. Click the event that you'd like to unregister from the list displayed on the right of the page.
4. Click the blue link Unregister, located to the right of "Can't make the event?" in the upper-right corner of the page.
5. Once clicked, the Register button will appear, and be clickable again. This means you have successfully unregistered for the event! Once you leave an event, the event will no longer be listed under the Registered section.
Note: if you receive a pop-up inquiring, "Did you unregister for this event?" when attempting to unregister, this means the event host used an external registration link for the event. Follow the process below in the next section to unregister.
Through an employers external link
If you received a pop-up "Did you unregister for this event?" when attempting to unregister for the event, or you know that you registered with an external link, you'll need to confirm whether the event is being hosted by your school or an employer.
The best way to confirm this is to navigate to the event page — the host will be displayed above the events name.
If the event is being hosted by:
- A school, contact the Career Services center for assistance with canceling the registration.
- An employer, contact the Handshake Support Team by submitting a ticket to unregister you.
Once you have unregistered for the event, return to the events page in Handshake and click the blue link Unregister, then click Yes within the pop-up "Did you unregister for this event?" to remove the registration in Handshake.
