  2. Click the Export button (upper left corner of screen) to download the gradebook
  3. Open the Excel .csv file and save it on your computer (keep the File Type .csv)
  4. Create a column in the spreadsheet for the final course grade, and enter your students’ grades (note the column number for when you perform the upload)
  5. Follow steps to log into MyOSU and upload the grades from your .csv file (Canvas does not store the CRN; it is not required for the file upload)

Note: only the primary instructor may upload final course grades to Online Services (Banner).
