This document describes what types of Canvas courses can be renamed, and how to do so.
Timetable courses cannot be renamed in Canvas. Cross-listing a course will not change the name.
Which courses can be renamed?
However, if the name is changed in SIS, it will update in Canvas.
Non-timetable courses can be renamed in "settings".
Changing the name of a non-timetable course
1. Load your course in Canvas, and then select "settings."
2. Change the text in the "Name" field
3. Click "update course details" at the bottom of the page (you may need to scroll down to see it.)
After this, your course name will be changed.
