I accidentally added a student to a section of a course that she is not supposed to be in. How do I remove a student from a section?
Thanks, I've contacted our Canvas admin to remove the student. I added her manually on the "My Courses" section by entering her username.

Hi VirginiaI'm not sure whether you want to remove the student from the course completely, or just from that one section and then move her to another section of the same course. Either way you can do this by going to the People page and then for the student in question use either "Remove from course" or "Edit sections". See these pages for more detail:How do I remove an enrollment from a course?How do I edit sections for an enrollment in a course?
I do not see this option in my Canvas course. When I go to People and search for the student, there is no option dropdown that lists removing a student from the course as an option.
Do you know if the student was enrolled on the course via SIS import (uploading a spreadsheet of enrolment details) rather than being added directly in the People page? When SIS import is used, the Remove From Course option is often missing for course teachers so you might need to ask your local Canvas admin to remove the student for you.
