How do I delete a course in an account as an admin?
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 at a later date.
If you only want to remove the course from Courses & Groups in the Global Navigation Bar, you can change the course participation end date, or conclude the course instead.
- 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).
- Courses are not deleted form an account unless done so by you or another user at your institution.
- Courses designated as templates cannot be deleted. However, users who have permission to delete a course template can deselect the Course Template checkbox and remove it as a course template.
In Global Navigation, click the Admin link , then click the name of the account .
In Course Navigation, click the Courses link.
Note: When you open an account, the account defaults to the Courses page.
To find the course in the account, use the filter and search options.
