Account settings in Canvas

Last modified 8/4/2023

The settings page is the home of the information tied to your Canvas account. From here, you can change things like your pronouns, email address, and accessibility features. 


Please note that the Account Settings page at Illinois State University may be different than the Canvas guides and what is available on the internet. Please contact the Technology Support Center for questions if you are unable to edit information on your profile.

To edit your accounts settings, click on the Edit Settings button on the right-hand side.
