When a student wants to leave a course period he was enrolled into, you need to drop him from that particular Course Period. In openSIS, even after dropping the student from the course period the attendance & grades entered will be kept for records.

This course period will not up show up in the Student's scheduling after dropping the student from that course period.
If you want to search the course periods the student was scheduled into or to view the dropped course info click on the "Include Inactive Courses" option. This will fetch the dropped course details.
