The full challenge says:

You've just learned how to use the jQuery methods text() and html(). Use the appropriate jQuery method to select the h1 element by its class name and set its contents to "Student <span>Profile</span>".

The syntax you used looks fine to me, too. Maybe the program checking your answer is hung up on capitalization: Try capitalizing student and profile.
