Moodle: FAQ: Is there a way to combine my course section enrollments?

Currently there is no way to automatically combine course enrollments for different course sections in moodle.

You can however manually add students to a course by using the “Assign Roles” link in the administration block of a course.  You will need to search for each user and add them to the student role.


  1. Enter course you want to add students to.
  2. Click ‘Assign Roles’ from the administration block.
  3. Under the roles column click ‘student’.
  4. Under the right most textbox enter the students computing id or name and click search.
  5. Highlight the user in the textbox by clicking their name and click the “Add” button located in the middle of the page.

Another method would be to get the address for a course and email or otherwise convey this information to the students.  When the student opens the link to a course they will be prompted to enroll.  If you have an enrollment key assigned to the course you will also need to give that information to the student.  More information about the enrollment key can be found here.


  1. Enter course
  2. Find the address bar in your browser.
  3. Highlight and copy the URL.

Example address would be:
http ://

‘xyz’ would be replaced with the numeric value assigned to a course.
