How do I change the settings in my user account as a student?

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.
