Student Access to Past Courses

Student access to courses ends after each semester

In order to comply with copyright law, student access to Moodle course sites will end a few weeks after the completed semester's grades are due. Students are welcome to download copies of any materials they would like to keep before that date.  Faculty should contact moodlehelp@earlham.edu  for assistance if they have a student who has an extension and requires temporary access to complete coursework.
