Is there a way to display a preferred name/nickname instead of legal name on Canvas?
Students wishing to change how their name displays in Canvas must complete an official request form and submit it to the Office of Admissions & Records from their Butte College issued email account to email@example.com. Please see the CHOSEN NAME OR LEGAL NAME CHANGE for more information and links to forms.
