    Hi Emtenan,

    Thanks for reaching out to the Schoology Community. I recommend contacting your teachers for the courses you would like to leave. Here is more information about Leaving a Course or Group.

    Your answer seems simple enough, but I am a teacher who has a lot of students still enrolled in courses in Schoology from several years ago, including cases where the teachers are no longer teaching and have left the field of education all together. I highly doubt these former teachers are going to login to Schoology (now several years later) and delete students from their old classes. And this is a problem for students because there are old, "dead" classes in their Schoology accounts. Wouldn't it be better to allow students to withdraw themselves from classes that are no longer active so they have control over what shows up in their own accounts? There has to be a better way. Even a lot of current teachers don't go back and delete students because they stopped using Schoology or just created new sections or even new courses. But students are helpless.

    If you have any contact with the people who oversee Schoology, please ask them to consider allowing students to withdraw from courses without going through teachers, perhaps by using a required deadline for the end of a course or something like that. Thanks so much!

    Thank you for your response. I will suggest this as a feature idea, and I will notify my students that for the time being they can contact support to be removed from old classes that teachers are no longer actively teaching.
