How do I change self-enrollment settings for my course?
Self-enrollment allows a student to sign up for a course without being invited to the course by an instructor or added to the course via SIS import. An account administrator determines if self-enrollment is enabled or disabled for the account. If self-enrollment is enabled, an instructor must also enable self-enrollment at the course level to create a self-enrollment course. This guide demonstrates how to change self-enrollment options at the course level. Self-enrollment can be enabled for a course whether or not the course is publicly visible. The steps in this guide are relevant only if self-enrollment is enabled at the account level.
Set Self-Enrollment Options
Select the Let students self-enroll by sharing with them a secret URL or code checkbox. Choosing this option allows students to self-enroll through a URL link. The URL option is available whether or not the course is publicly visible.
Note: By default, self-enrollment is not enabled for courses. An instructor must select this checkbox to enable self-enrollment.
