Change your name on your certificate [HC]

:information_source: This article will help you to change how your name appears on certificates you have earned.

Your name on your course completion certificate will match your name on your Saylor Academy account at the time you earned that certificate.

If the name on your certificate is incorrect, you can request a correction through our certificates partner Accredible.

Good to know

  • Certificates are managed by our partner Accredible.
  • You will need to request a name change separately for each certificate you have earned.
  • Requests are usually approved in 1-3 business days.
  • To make sure future certificate are correct, change your name on your Saylor Academy account.

How to request a name change for your certificate

  1. “Sign in” to your certificate.

    The easiest way to do this is to log in to your Saylor Academy account, find the My Certificates section on your dashboard, and click on the name of the course – you will be taken to your certificate on our partner Accredible’s website and automatically signed in.

    If you want, you can also create an account with Accredible or sign in to an existing account. (Your Accredible account is not the same as your Saylor Academy account.)

  2. Visit the certificate you want to update.

  3. Near the text “Share your achievement!” click the MORE link (on a larger screen) or the Options button (on a smaller screen).

  4. On the menu that appears, select the option to Request a Name Change.

  5. Enter your name as it should appear on your certificate, confirm your name, and then click the Submit Request button.

  6. Your request will be sent to Saylor Academy and you should get a response in 1-3 business days.
