How to Change Schoology Profile Picture

Here’s a detailed guide on how to change your profile picture on Schoology:


  • A computer or mobile device with an internet browser
  • Your Schoology login credentials
  • An image file (JPEG, PNG, or GIF) for your new profile picture (size limit: 5 MB)

Steps (using a computer browser):

  1. Log in to Schoology: Navigate to and enter your username and password to access your Schoology account.

  2. Access Your Profile: There are two ways to access your profile settings:

    • Hover over your profile picture (if you have one): If you currently have a profile picture, hover your mouse over it. A small menu should appear with an option to “Edit Picture.” Click on “Edit Picture.”
    • Access profile settings: If you don’t have a profile picture or can’t see the hover menu, click on your name located at the top right corner of the screen. This will display a dropdown menu. Select “My Profile” from the menu options.
  3. Edit Profile Picture: You’ll be directed to your profile page. Locate the section dedicated to your profile picture. It might be labeled “Profile Picture” or similar.

  4. Choose an Image: Here, you have two options for selecting your new profile picture:

    • Attach File: Click on the “Attach File” button or a similar option. This will open your device’s file explorer. Navigate to the location where your desired profile picture is saved and select the image file.
    • Use Avatar (Optional): Some Schoology accounts might offer pre-made avatars you can choose from. If available, you’ll see a selection of avatars below the “Attach File” option. Click on the avatar you want to use as your profile picture.
  5. Preview and Save: Once you’ve selected your image or chosen an avatar, you might see a preview of how it will look as your profile picture. If you’re happy with it, click on the “Save” button or a similar option to confirm the change.

Steps (using the Schoology mobile app):

  1. Open the Schoology app: Launch the Schoology mobile app on your smartphone or tablet.

  2. Access the Menu: Tap on the hamburger menu icon (three horizontal lines) located in the top left corner of the app screen.

  3. Navigate to Profile: From the menu options, select “My Profile.”

  4. Edit Profile Picture: On your profile page, locate the section dedicated to your profile picture. Tap on the profile picture area or an “Edit” button next to it (if available).

  5. Choose an Image: You’ll be directed to your device’s image gallery or file picker. Select the image file you want to use as your profile picture.

  6. Crop and Save: You might be able to crop the image to fit the profile picture format within the app. Once you’re satisfied with the selection and cropping (if available), tap the “Save” button or a similar option to confirm the change.

Additional Tips:

  • Ensure your chosen image file adheres to the size limit (5 MB) set by Schoology. Uploading larger images might result in errors or resizing issues.
  • The specific steps and interface might vary slightly depending on your Schoology account version and device.
  • If you encounter any difficulties while changing your profile picture, contact your school’s Schoology administrator for assistance.
