How do I prevent students from switching groups in self sign-up groups?

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 prevent students from switching groups in self sign-up groups?

When self-sign up is enabled for a group, students are able to switch groups. To prevent students from switching groups you can disable self sign-up at any time.

If a group has a student leader, the leader will be able to manage group memberships through the course People page regardless of self sign-up settings. However, student group leaders cannot change the number of members allowed in a group.
