Important Information about Your E-mail in Handshake
At this time, Handshake only supports showing one e-mail address on a student Handshake profile. We know that several students, for various reasons, have more than one Penn e-mail and would like to control which of them gets displayed in Handshake. Please follow the steps below in order to change your e-mail in Handshake.
DO NOT try to open a second Handshake account with your preferred e-mail address. Any request you make for a new account will get automatically rejected and could singfinicantly delay geting your profile updated.
To change your preferred Penn e-mail in Handshake:
- Go the Penn Directory and click "Update Directory Listings"
- Under "My Penn Details," find your e-mail and click "edit"
- Find the e-mail you want to display in Handshake and click the box that says "Display in My Penn Details." (If you want it to also be the e-mail that comes up in the directory search, click "Display as My Search Result".)
- Click submit, confirm changes have been made and log out
After 4-5 days, the Penn Directory will sync with the data warehouse and then again with Handshake. If after one week of making the changes you still don't see your preferred e-mail in Handshake, please reach out to us here.
