Student withdrawal

Modified on: Thu, Apr 11, 2019 at 8:27 AM

A student who withdraws from a course that uses a Canvas site will still display in the People page but not in the Grades

The student will still be associated with the Canvas site. This is because students who withdraw from a course still have an academic record within Canvas that must be preserved.

NOTE: Withdrawing from a course is not the same as dropping a course. See the Office of the Registrar's guidelines for withdrawing from a course.
