Merge (Cross-list) Request: Crosslisting allows you to combine section enrollments into one course.
Roster Verification -- Removing -- Concluding Course Enrollments from your Canvas course:
Canvas is set to NEVER drop student and/or faculty enrollments. ATS will not remove (or add) students/instructors from courses; students who have dropped are advised to contact you for removal from the course.
To remove a student/instructor from your course, follow the instructions to CONCLUDE the student. If needed, you will be able to restore a student who has been "concluded." Any grades and assignment submissions will remain in the course.
