How to enable/disable self-registration module

This article explains how to enable or disable a self-registration module that allows new students to register without waiting for the administrator’s approval.

Enabling Self-Registration Module

To enable the self-registration module, click the System on the left side menu and select the Settings and customization option.



Once the System preferences page opens, navigate to the Additional modules tab and activate self-registration by clicking the toggle button.



To disable the self-registration, click the toggle button again.



Note: If you want to see what the registration process looks like when the module is active and inactive, check this article or watch this video.

Approving registration requests if Self-Registration is disabled

Administrators need to manually approve or decline new registration requests if you disable the self-registration module.

Click the Users on the left-side menu, select User profiles and select the Registration requests tab.



To approve or decline registration requests:

  1. Tick the box next to the student’s username,
  2. Click the Actions button, and from the drop-down menu, select:
    1. Approve – to approve the registration request and permit the user to become a student. 
    2. Decline – to decline the registration request and prevent the user from becoming a student. 


A student will consequently receive an email notification containing a generated password. To learn how to configure these notifications, please read the How to configure email and application notifications article.


The other way to approve or decline the registration request is through the notifications panel.


Note: When an administrator approves the request, the registration process for that student is finished.
