Information students can see of their peers

Email Addresses

Students cannot see each other’s email addresses. However, they can send each other messages from the Canvas Inbox tool.

SUNet ID/Login ID

Students cannot see each other's SUNet or Login ID. Instructors have access to that information.

Roster Photos

Students cannot access the Roster Photos tool. If students say they can see photos of their classmates in Canvas, it is because Canvas users have the option to add a Canvas profile photo. These photos are separate from the Roster Photos photos, which are photos used on Stanford ID cards. 


Students will never see grades of other students, regardless of whether or not the Grades tool is hidden from the course navigation. Students can only see their own grades.
