I cannot unenroll in a class. What should I do?

If you find yourself unable to unenroll in a class, your teacher might have restricted students from unenrolling themselves. However, your teacher might have archived the class, thus making them inaccessible to you. If it’s an archived class, you can ask your teacher to unarchive them first to let you unenroll.

Can I still search for a document from an archived class?

You can access documents and other works from an archived class by going to Google Drive.
