How do I move a student enrollment between courses?

  • Updated:

Easily maintain student information when moving students between courses with a shared Base Course

  1. Open the Users tool from the Main Menu and select the user's User ID.
  1. Open the Enrollments screen and select the Enrollment ID that you want to change.
  1. Open the vertical menu in the toolbar and select Move Enrollment.
  2. Enter the new course name or ID in the Move this enrollment to course field.
  3. Click Move.

When moving a student between courses that are copied from the same Base Course (even with a Static Copy), submission and grading information remains intact for all activities with matching activity IDs.


  • Blog, Discussion, Journal, and Wiki submission content isn't automatically transferred even with matching activity IDs.
  • When moving a student between courses with non-matching activity IDs, the teacher of the original course can export gradebook information for the new course's teacher.
