How to change your school

Hi, I do not see any way to change what school you go to. What should people graduating from their school do?

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

It cannot be changed in my case. What should I do now?

You can change your school (I just happened to do that myself today!). Your name should be on the top-right corner of the webpage. Click on it. Then click on 'Account settings'. You should be directed to a new page. Then click on 'personal info'. Scroll down and you should find a text box labelled 'name of your current school'. Change your school name (if you want to) and click 'update extra verification'.

If you don't want to go through all the steps mentioned above, just click here.

Hope this helps!

My box is grayed out. Is there something else I have to do to change my school?

@Wayne Zhao Yeah we just changed our profile setup. You can go to your profile, click the about tab, and scroll down to a box that says Academic and work history. That box is private, but when you change your school it will change up at the top of your profile.

@Peter Taylor My profile says my old school even after my changing school. In the academic History, it is okay but on the top under my name, it is still my old school name written.

@Peter Taylor Thanks for replying so quickly. It seems though, nothing is changing when I update my College/University. I check the "I currently go here" box and save. My profile still says my old high school. I then click the edit link for the school again and the "I currently go here" box is unchecked.

@Wayne Zhao My box is also grayed up. I am not able to write anything.
