You can delete a user from your account.

Notes:

  • This process cannot be undone and will remove the user's data (including grades) from all courses and groups.
  • If your account manages user information through a student information system (SIS), changes will also have to be made in the SIS. Any changes made in Canvas will not be passed back to the SIS.
