How Do I Conclude a Course at the End of a Term?

Concluding a course means that all users in the course will have read-only access to the course. If your institution uses software that automatically concludes enrollments, you do not have to manually end your course since the end date of the course will automatically conclude the course on your behalf. Learn how to change the end date of your course instead.

Once a course is concluded, if you do not want students to view prior course content, you can restrict students from viewing prior courses.

Note: Manually concluding a course is a course permission. If the Conclude this Course button does not appear in Course Settings, this setting has been restricted for your course. If you are an instructor, contact your admin for assistance.
