How do I drop a Canvas Network or Catalog course or program?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I drop a Canvas Network or Catalog course or program?

Catalog users (including users of Canvas Network) can drop courses or programs from the Student Dashboard. If a course is set to only allow users to participate during a specified date range, Catalog users will only be able to drop the course during the time period between the course start and end dates. Otherwise, users can drop the course at any time.  If your course or enrollment status has concluded, you can no longer drop the course. Catalog users can also drop programs as well.

Courses can only be dropped if you enrolled in the course directly through your institution's Catalog. If you were manually added to the course by an instructor or admin, you will have to ask the instructor or admin to remove you from the course.
