How do I delete a course?


Delete Courses and Sections

Faculty members with the ability to create courses in their school may delete any course they've created, after first deleting all sections associated with it.

To delete sections for a course:

  1. Click Courses at the top.
  2. Click My Courses.
  3. Click the gear icon to the right of a section you'd like to delete. If no gear appears, click the course’s name. A list of blue section titles should display below, each with the gear icon menu to the right.
  4. Click Delete.


After you’ve deleted all associated course sections, an X appears to the right of the course name. Now you can delete the course itself:

  1. Click the X to the right of the course name.
  2. Click Delete in the popup menu that displays to delete the course.

    Hi Kathleen,

    If you'd like to be un-enrolled from a course, we recommend you contact the Course Administrator and request removal from the course. You can also contact your System Administrator for help. You can find help at your school by clicking the Support link located at the bottom of any page in Schoology.

    If you have any trouble contacting someone at your school, please let me know - I am happy to contact them on your behalf.
