How to Remove a User from a Moodle Course

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

  • It may take up to 72 hours for a user to be enrolled in your Moodle course after they register or drop the course in OnTrack.

1.) Beside the name of your course, click the gear icon (1) and click 'More' (2)

An image of settings gear expanded, with the gear icon circled and labeled 1, and more circled and labeled 2.

  • The gear icon is located in the Administration block on the left side of the page. You may have to scroll down to see it if you've moved your blocks around. You do not have to turn on editing to unenroll a user.

2.) On the course administration page, click the 'Users' tab (1) and click 'Enrolled users' (2)

An image of the course administration page, with users circled and labeled 1 and enrolled users circled and labeled 2.

  • Clicking this link will take you to the Enrolled Users page, which is where you can add or remove users.

3.) Find the user you would like to remove

An example student you would want to remove.

4.) Click the trash can icon (located beside of the user's enrollment information)

An image of the trash can icon location, which has been circled.

  • You'll be taken to a confirmation page asking if you want to proceed with removing that user.
  • 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.

5.) Click 'Continue' on the confirmation page

  • This will complete the process of removing that user from your course.
