Withdrawn Students: Suspended Enrollment Moodle ISU


Students who withdraw from a course on or before the designated add/drop date will be placed in a suspended enrollment status in Moodle ISU. While the students will appear in some contexts of your course after they are suspended, they will not be able to access any information within the course. This handout will describe how students with suspended enrollment will appear in the instructor view of your Moodle ISU course.

Note: Students who withdraw after the add/drop date will not be removed from the course.
