Where are the previous courses I’ve taken in Moodle?

While you can find a full list of your previous courses in Self-Service, all Moodle course spaces, aside from professional development courses offered through the Office of Continuing Education, are archived approximately one week into the next semester/term. At that time, the archived courses in which you are a student will no longer appears in your “My Courses” block.

  • WINTER & SPRING term courses are usually archived near the beginning of June.
  • MAY & SUMMER courses are usually archived near the end of August or the beginning of September.
  • FALL Courses are usually archived near the middle to end of January.

When a specific date for the archiving process is determined, it is announced through the University’s email.

As a student, you can walk through an approval process for a short-term access to a previous course. If granted by the dean team and instructor, the course can be opened for a period of ~72 hours for you to download any work that you had not previously saved.

If you wish to being the approval process, please submit a Moodle Support Help Desk ticket. For each course to which you wish to request access, please include the following in the text of the request:

  1. Course ID (e.g., BADM 101, COUN 888, NURS 420C, etc.) and section number — this information will be in Self-Service, if you are not sure of the details
  2. Course Name (e.g., Intro to Business, Principles of Counseling, Pediatric Nursing, etc.
  3. Instructor’s Name
  4. If the course was taken more than more, please indicate the Academic Term & Session, if you know if (e.g., Fall 2019 TERM2, May term 2020, etc.)

Again, if you are looking for a Continuing Education course, you need to work with the office directly. A professional development course offered through the Office of Continuing Education likely has a course id of EDU or BIO (no ‘L’), though there are other ids, and contains ‘WKS’ and ‘ContED’ somewhere in the full course id, such as EDU 893S/WKS2-2019/FALL/ContED – Intro to Special Education.
