A merged course in Canvas is designated by three characters, (M), placed at the end of the course title. Go to Settings > Sections in a merged course to view a list of sections attached to the merge. If a merge is missing sections, please email canvashelp@uidaho.edu to have them added.

Standard Course Numbers (e.g. Directed study - 299, 499, 502, 602 and Special topics - 204, 404, 504, 604) cannot be merged with Catalog CoursesSpecial Topics courses can only be merged with other Special Topics courses. Directed Study courses can only be merged with other Directed Study courses. (See Faculty Staff Handbook)

Request course merges prior to the start of the semester. Submitted student work does not transfer with a merge. So if students have already submitted work in the original section, that section cannot be moved into a merge.
