Deleting an object from an Array list through a selected item from a JComboBox

I have a student enrolment system I am having trouble with. I'm trying to remove an object from an

by selecting it from a

public class Course {

public List<Student> Students;
public List<Module> Modules;

public Course()
Students = new ArrayList<Student>();
Modules = new ArrayList<Module>();

public class Del_Student extends JFrame

private Course newCourse;
public Del_Student(Course aCourse)
newCourse = aCourse;
JButton btnDel = new JButton("Delete");
JButton btnCancel = new JButton("Cancel");
JComboBox studentsBox = new JComboBox();
studentsBox.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(185,25));

for(int i=0; i<newCourse.Students.size();i++ )
String p = newCourse.Students.get(i).getFirstName();

new ActionListener() {
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {

I have added a string from the object to show on the
, so what I am trying to do is select that item (shown by Students name) and then delete the selected item.

To help anyone else with a similar problem, I solved the solution by doing the following:

    btnDel.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
            for (int i = 0; i < newCourse.Students.size(); i++) {
                if (newCourse.Students.get(i).getFirstName().equals(studentsBox.getSelectedItem()
                        .toString())) {
                    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Student Deleted");
                    for (int t = 0; t < newCourse.Students.size(); t++) {
                        String p = newCourse.Students.get(t).getFirstName();
