I don’t recognize my username. How do I change it?

In order to protect your privacy, Course Hero automatically generates an anonymous username for you. To customize your username, follow the steps below:

1) Hover your mouse over your profile picture icon, located in the top-right corner.

2) Click “My Profile.“

3) Once you’re in your profile, click the “Edit Profile” link.

4) From here, you can edit your username or create a new one.

5) Click the pink “Save” icon on the right-hand side.


From here, you should be all set with your updated username.

*Important Note: You can only change your username once. If your requested username is already taken by another member, an error message will appear asking you to try again.
