How do I edit sections for a student in my course?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
Once students have been added to your course, you may be able to edit their course section from the People page.
- If you add a student to a course that is not active, the student will be able to see the course listed in his or her Future Enrollment courses. However, the student cannot access the course until it has been published.
- Adding students to a section is a course permission. If you cannot add students to your course, your institution has restricted this feature.
- Sections may be added by your institution's student information system (SIS). If a user in your course includes an SIS ID, you may not have permission to edit sections.
Hover over the user's name and click the Settings icon . Select the Edit Sections  link.
View Section Enrollment
Type the section name to find the section you want to add the user to.
