How do I merge my user account with an account using the same email address as an observer?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I merge my user account with an account using the same email address as an observer?

If you have an email address registered in two Canvas accounts, you can merge these accounts. Merging accounts combines the logins, contact methods, and enrollments for the two accounts.

The option to merge user accounts only displays in User Settings if the account has two or more registered and verified email addresses, and if one of the same email addresses is also registered and verified in another account.

In order to complete this process, you must know the Canvas username and password for both accounts.

Note: Merging user accounts cannot be undone.
