How do I enable students to unenroll themselves from courses?

To enable students to unenrol themselves from any course:

  1. Access Site Administration > Users > Permissions > Define roles
  2. Click the edit icon opposite the student role
  3. Change any/all of the capabilities enrol/manual:unenrolself, enrol/paypal:unenrolself and enrol/self:unenrolself (depending upon which enrolment plugins are enabled for the site) from not set to allow
  4. Click the “Save changes” button at the bottom of the page

To enable students to unenrol themselves from a particular course:

  1. Go to Settings > Course administration > Users > Permissions
  2. Click the Allow icon (+) opposite the appropriate unenrolself capability (corresponding to the method in which students are enrolled) and allow the student role

Note: If students are manually enrolled in the course, then enrol/manual:unenrolself should be allowed; if students self-enrol, then enrol/self:unenrolself should be allowed.
