How can I merge multiple courses?

Instructors are able to merge multiple courses (such as different sections of a course) by “cross listing” them in Canvas.

Cross-listing allows you to move section enrollments from individual courses and combine them into one course. This feature is helpful for instructors who teach several sections of the same course and only want to manage course data in one location. Cross-listing should be done while courses are unpublished. Coursework is retained with the course, not with the section enrollments, so if a published course is cross-listed, all cross-listed enrollments will lose any associated assignment submissions and grades.

You can also decross list a section if needed. Please contact the IT Helpdesk, call the helpdesk at 518-327-6465 or email if you need assistance.
