Moodle Quickstart Guide for Faculty

Student Enrollment Keys

Students enrollment is managed at a system level. Yet, if you need to manually add students to your courses (e.g., to have honors students access the regular course page), you can set an enrollment key. The feature can also be used to add other participants to the course (i.e. non-editing teachers, although for the latter you need to check with the Dean's Office first).


The enrollment keys can be created and edited by the faculty. To change/edit the enrollment key:

  • Go to your course homepage in Moodle
  • Click on Participants in the left menu.
  • On the right-hand side, click on the Actions menu gear icon.
  • Select Self enrollment (Student) from the menu (or non-editing teacher, if that is the case).
  • Type in the new text in the Enrolment key setting (you can double check what you have typed by clicking on the eye icon).
