hkc1@psu.edu, it depends on your school and how they manage things. For many schools, like mine, we don't let anyone change their name in Canvas, they have to get it formally changed with Records at our school. This then automatically updates their name in Canvas. If your school does allow you to change your name in Canvas then these directions will help - https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-9991-4152719730
