Profile (Students)

Your personal profile contains information about you and your activity on Schoology such as your interests, parents/advisors, and course/group enrollments.

To access your profile:

  1. Click your name in the upper-right of the header in Schoology.
  2. Click Your Profile.

Schoology users that click on your name in Schoology will also be taken to your profile. System-wide privacy settings in your school may affect who can view your profile. Additionally, depending on the settings in place at your school, you may control who can view your profile by adjusting your Account Privacy Settings.

Profile Picture

To change your profile picture:

If the Edit Picture option does not appear when you hover over your picture, your school may have different rules for profile pictures. Please reach out to your instructor with any questions.

  1. Hover over the profile picture and click Edit Picture.
  2. If you already have a photo in place, click Remove Picture to remove your current picture from view.
  3. Click Attach File.
  4. Choose a JPEG, PNG, or GIF file from your device. There is a 5 MB limit per photo file.
  5. If you'd like to use an avatar instead, choose an avatar below.


The Info tab provides other users with additional information about you.

Some information, such as parents and advisors with whom you are associated, may be included by default due to the settings in place at your school.

Click Edit in the upper-right corner of your profile to edit or add information.

You may not be able to edit your profile information based on settings in place at your school. Contact your teacher with any questions.


The Badges area displays all of the badges your instructors have awarded you in a course. You may filter badges by current and past courses, and sort the order of badges into your newest or oldest badges.

Enterprise only features

The following features are only available for students who have the Enterprise version of Schoology. If you aren't sure whether you have Enterprise, ask your teacher.


By default, student account blogs are not enabled unless enabled by your school's system administrator. If enabled, you can use the Blog feature to create posts on your personal profile. You can use the rich text editor to attach files, resources, or audio/video recordings.


Students at Enterprise organizations may see Portfolios listed on the Profile menu. Portfolios are a great way to showcase your work, to compile projects you are proud of or display information you've learned.
