Moodle provides a number of ways of managing course enrolment, called ''enrolment plugins''. There are [[Contributed code|contributed plugins]] and standard Moodle plugins include:

#Click on ''Administration > Site administration > Plugins > Enrolments > Manage enrol plugins''.

 +
#Click the settings link opposite the enrolment plugin(s) you have chosen.
