    About Us

    A Smarter Way to Student®

    As the leading student-first connected learning platform, our mission is to help every student achieve their best, in school and beyond.

    Our Vision

    We strive to improve the overall return on investment in education by helping students learn more in less time and at a lower cost.

    History

    We started our journey as an education technology company focused on affordability and accessibility. Now, we help students in every step of their own journey, from learning to earning.

    Values

    We foster a culture that is consistent with our mission. We bring that integrity to our products, customers, work environment, and the community.

    People

    We bring our vision to life by investing in our people. We come together virtually and in our offices around the world to collaborate, innovate, and have fun.

    Impact

    Helping students succeed extends beyond enhancing their academic experience. We aim to make an impact in multiple areas of their lives and in their communities.

    What We Do

    We put students first

    We strive to improve educational outcomes by putting the student first. We support students on their journey from high school to college and into their career with tools designed to help them learn their course materials, succeed in their classes, save money on required materials, and learn the most in-demand skills. Our services are available online, anytime and anywhere.

    Learning Services

    We provide products and services to support the needs of the modern student. Many of today’s learners are working to support themselves, facing financial challenges, and fulfilling responsibilities as parents or caregivers – all while pursuing their education. More than ever, they need accessible resources that are online, affordable, and available 24 hours a day. Our goal is to connect learners with access to books and etextbooks, study help, writing help, math help, practice problems, flashcards, and more.

    Chegg Skills

    For more than a decade, Chegg has supported students from higher education institutions to help them succeed in school and achieve their dreams. The traditional academic path, however, often fails to meet all of their needs and bring positive outcomes within their reach. For many, achieving their dream takes a different route, yet still requires many of the same skills. We created Chegg Skills to help bridge the gap between those learners and the modern, high tech workplace they want to enter.

    Chegg Life

    Today’s students face unprecedented challenges that profoundly affect their personal lives outside the classroom. From daily responsibilities to significant life transitions, Chegg Life is an honest guide for the real world. Whether it’s health and wellness, money or life skills, we created Chegg Life to give students the tools to confidently navigate it all. Our fundamental goal is to ease them through the messy transitions so they can live in the moment while planning for the future.

    Working at Chegg

    Life at Chegg is innovative, collaborative, and fun
    The same way we put students first in our work, we put employees first in our workplace. Our teams around the world come together to create a supportive culture that celebrates diversity and builds on our shared passion for students.

    WHAT'S IN THE NAME?

    Chegg was launched as Textbookflix.com and in 2007 officially changed its name to Chegg, a well-thought-out combination of chicken and egg.
