Hello there, @ChelseaQuirk …

Unfortunately, the Canvas Community would not be able to help get your surname change because we do not have access to your school’s Canvas environment.  I would recommend that you check with someone at your school about this…such as your school’s local Canvas administrator or someone from your school’s Online Learning/eLearning department.  They may have procedures in place to change your surname in their Student Information Systems…which, in turn, may also automatically update your surname in Canvas.  I browsed the Lindenwood University website, and I was able to find this support site for you which has some contact information under the heading “Need Technical Assistance?”: Technology Services | Lindenwood University Online

I hope this will be of some help to you.  Good luck with your classes this coming semester!
