How to change a student name in Canvas

January 31, 2020

At ISU, Canvas users are not currently able to change their name or gender marker within the Canvas system directly. Names are populated into Canvas based on the officially registered names in the student information system (SIS). A student’s officially registered name and gender marker can be changed but this may negatively impact their Student Financial Aid, international visas, and ISU employment records.
