Syncing Gradescope roster with your Canvas course completes your Gradescope/Canvas course syncing process.  

Please review the documentation linked here if you haven’t yet linked your courses or you are looking for assignment syncing: 

Sync Canvas Roster to Gradescope 

  1. Click Gradescope in the Canvas course menu 
  2. Click Roster in the left-hand menu 
  3. Click Sync OSU Canvas Roster in the toolbar at the bottom of the page 
  4. Uncheck the box next to "Let new users know that they were added to the course" to prevent students from being notified.  
  5. Click Sync Roster 


  • Gradescope/Canvas integration was upgraded on September 6, 2022. If you linked your GS and Canvas course prior to the integration upgrade, you may run into a roster syncing error. Please contact if you experience this issue. 
  • Remember to sync roster periodically during the course add/drop period to make sure your Gradescope roster is up-to-date. If students who dropped the course had submissions in Gradescope, their submissions will still be present in the Gradescope assignments available to the instructors in the Review Grades page. The students who dropped the course will no longer have access to the course after a roster sync.
