In error, a student self-dropped a course and no longer appears in the Canvas Course, People. 

The student still appears in Canvas Catalog with a Dropped status.   Yet, I don't believe the fee was automatically refunded.

As an Admin, is there a way to restore the student dropped course?  If so, will it also change their status in Canvas Catalog back to Active?

If no to restoring.  What is the best way to get the student back into the course? 

+People?  Which will still reflect the student in Canvas Catalog with Dropped status.

Refund original order transaction in Canvas Catalog and have the student re-enroll and pay?  Which, now in Canvas Catalog, the student name will appear twice, one with Dropped status and another with an Active status.

I can second @nwilson7 generally adding them back in with the same email they were added in with before restores their profile and work in canvas. I have had to do this a few times with students that were switched in and out of my course.
