Remove a User from a Moodle Course

This article covers the process of un-enrolling a user from a Moodle course. This process can be used for organizational Moodle sites or courses. Moodle student and instructor enrollments are processed automatically. This means:

  • You cannot remove a user who has been enrolled through the registrar. They must contact the registrar and drop the course to be removed.
  • It may take up to 48 hours for a user to be enrolled or removed from your Moodle course after they register or drop the course in OnTrack.

For information beyond this article, please visit Moodle documentation here and here.

1. If a user has been manually added to your course, navigate to the course you would like to remove a user from. Select "Participants" from the course menu.

2. Locate the user you would like to remove. Click the trashcan icon located in the same row as the user's information.

  • If you would like to delete multiple users, select them using the check boxes at the left of the user information and select the action from the drop-down menu below.

3. Click 'Unenroll' on the confirmation page

  • You'll be taken to a confirmation page asking if you want to proceed with removing that user. This will complete the process of removing that user from your course.
  • If you have linked/combined sections, the trash can icon may not appear. If that is the case, you will need to go to the Moodle course that the user was originally enrolled in to remove them. Removing them in the original course will remove them from the linked course.
