Learn about user enrollment controls

User control types
  • By default, both students and teachers can unenroll a student from a class.
  • Admins can update the settings so only teachers can unenroll students.
How unenrollment controls work

Admins can assign the unenrollment settings at the organization level, so schools can control the portions of the domain they need. 

If a SIS integrator such as Clever has been provisioned, teachers get a warning when they edit the class roster.
