Student Enrollment Keys

Once you have informed the students that they have to create their own Moodle account, you will have to give them the enrollment key, a one-time password that will allow the students to access the course materials.

The enrollment keys are usually created with the courses and they have the following format:

Course code (including section if available) + semester abbreviated





The enrollment keys can also be 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.
  • Type in the new text in the Enrolment key setting (you can double check what you have typed by clicking on the eye icon).
