Change or Edit Name on a Credential

When you open your credential, you have the ability to change the name displayed on your credential. By default, we use the name associated with your Codecademy account.

Here’s how: If you click ‘Request a Name Change’ in the left sidebar of your certificate, you will then be prompted to enter a verification code– the code will be sent to you via email.

Enter the verification email sent to you to make any changes to the credential.


Enter the name you wish to be displayed on your credential.


After you enter and submit the name change, one of two things will happen:

  1. If the name change is completely different from what was originally printed, a request to approve the name change is sent to our Learner Operations Team.
    • This can take 1-2 days to be approved and sent back.
  2. If the name change is not very different from what was originally printed, the request will process automatically.

If your request was denied, please contact our Support Team.
