When you first sign up for Niche, you will be asked a few questions that will help us understand what you are looking for and how you plan to utilize the platform. These questions will register you into a specific role. The information that you add during the registration process can always be updated or deleted by going to your account settings.
Please note: your registration experience may vary slightly depending on your state of residence and your age at the time of registration.
You can access your account settings or profile in order to change your user role by clicking on your name in the upper right corner of the Niche home screen. A menu will appear with an "Edit Profile" or "My Profile" option in the lower right corner. It will look like the images below, dependent on your registration role.
Your registration role can be updated in your profile settings. Once you are in your settings, you can go to the "About You" section and then click on the "Which of the following best describes you?" drop-down option. You will select one of the roles and then save your changes. It will look like the images below.
After updating your role, you may be asked a few additional questions. It is important to note that changing your user role can also change your eligibility for certain Niche-sponsored scholarships.
