How do I delete a course in an account?
Once you delete a course, the course will be completely removed from your institution's account and will not be viewable by you, prior students, or the account administrator. We do not recommend deleting courses (even concluded ones), especially if the course contains content and student data because you may need to access that information a later date.
If you only want to remove the course from Courses & Groups in the Global Navigation Bar, you can change the course end date, or conclude the course instead.
Note: Before you delete a course, make sure you have a record of your Course ID number in case you need to restore it. You can locate your Course ID number at the end of your course URL (i.e. canvas.instructure.com/courses/XXXXXX).
In Global Navigation, click the Admin link , then click the name of the account .
Use the filter and search options to find the course in the account.
Note: Currently the Courses page includes two different layout options. Depending on the Courses page display, the page may include various filter and search options to find the course in the account.
In the search results, click the Settings link for the course.
