How do I set a profile picture in the Student app on my iOS device?

If your institution allows profile pictures, you can add a profile picture in the Student app.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

Notes:

  • Changing your profile picture in the app will also change the profile picture in your browser version of Canvas.
  • If you cannot add a profile picture, your institution has restricted this feature.
