Does clicking the enrollment link immediately enroll a student?

Are all students who access my course-specific enrollment link immediately and automatically enrolled in the course? Or is there some way I can have them request permission to enroll, which I would then approve?

The reason I ask this is that I would like to avoid having to send out enrollment links to my class multiple times, as new students join during the first few weeks. I'd like to post the enrollment link on my syllabus. However, if the enrollment is going to be automatic, I will not be able to do this, because the syllabus will be publicly accessible and would thus allow people who are not in my class to enroll.

When a student clicks an enroll link, they must then sign in with a Wikipedia account and go through a welcome screen where they add their name and email address. After that, they return to the course page and must click 'Join' to enroll on the course page.

Students are not likely to enroll by accident just by exploring the link, but anyone with the enroll code (which is embedded at the end of the enrollment) is able to join a course. However, as the instructor, it will be possible for you to remove anyone who doesn't belong.
