How Can I re arrange student order to group for different classes of students. Canvas puts them all together and in otherwords I want to keep groups of students from different semesters separate?
Are you using the "free for teachers" version of Canvas?
The best way to manage grouping students within the course for the kind of situation you describe is probably to create a new section for each semester, and put the students from that semester into their own section. You can also use sections to ensure that the students from different semesters don't see each other in discussions, control the dates that the course is available to each semester's students, differentiate assignment dates, etc.

How do I change the start and end dates for a course section as an instructor?
