How do I change the settings in my user account as an instructor?

Depending on how your Canvas account was created, you may be able to make changes to your name, default email, language, time zone, and password.

  • Setting a chosen language will override any default language settings across your institution; however, any language set in a course will override your user language.
  • Your institution may take care of updating or changing your password by using the password associated with your login credentials for Canvas.
  • Users associated with a SIS ID cannot delete their own account.

Note: Some settings may not be available to you. If you are not able to edit your user settings, you will need to contact your institution to change this information.
