Remove an Instructor 

The process of removing an instructor from the Instructor/Advisor Table is the reverse of the process to add them. You will remove the row containing each subject to remove access. For instructors who are no longer at WSU, you can set them to Inactive.

  • Find the desired individual using WSU ID (with leading 0, example: 099999999) or Last Name and First Name.
  • Select Search.
