All changes to a student’s enrollment status has to be done in the SIS.  Any changes made to a student’s enrollment status in a course will be undone during the evening master enrollment update.  This includes setting a student to Inactive or concluding the course for an individual student.

Note: Instructors should not manually add or remove students in a course. Adding or removing students can cause issues with course enrollments later.

Student Enrollment Status

  • Students who withdraw from a course are set to inactive and are still accessible for instructors to view activity and grade information.
  • Inactive students cannot access the course and do not receive course notifications.
  • Students who are dropped due to no payment are removed from the course, but will be re-enrolled once fulfilling financial obligations.
