Override a Student's Final Grade in the Gradebook in Canvas




Faculty would like to enter a final grade that is not based on the calculations in the gradebook. 


View this Canvas guide for details on the final grade override process. 

The Final Grade Override feature has been enabled so that instructors will no longer need to enable the feature at the course-level

  • Go to the Gradebook, click on the Settings (gear) icon on the far right
    • Open the Advanced tab
    • Check beside Allow final grade override
    • Click the Update button
  • Grade values are retained in the Grades view when faculty enable the option again after they disable it from the Settings > Advanced tab area
  • When toggled off in the Advanced tab, the final grade override does not download in the export
  • Students do not see the final grade override menu

Additional Information

If the final grade override option is unchecked when importing the gradebook back, the column does not appear. This prompt appears: "There were no changes detected in the gradebook you uploaded."
