    Screen capture of the Search Entities page showing search fields and a results grid. An arrow points to the icon within the Edit column in the results grid.
  3. Next, inform catalog searchers if your district will be allowing guardians to submit requests for their children to take online courses through a provider in Michigan’s Online Course Catalog.  At this point choose to do one of the following:
    • tap the Allow Primary Registration check box to display a check mark, which will allow requests.
    • tap the check box to remove the check mark to deny requests. If your district chooses to deny requests, insert an explanation for why the requests will be denied in the Deny Primary Registration text box.
  4. Then inform catalog searchers if your district chooses to allow registration requests. Continue by either:
    • tapping the Offering District Allows Registration Request check box to display a check mark, which will allow requests.
    • tapping the check box to remove the check mark to automatically deny requests.
  5. Finally, click the Submit button to apply your changes.

Keep up with the latest Michigan Virtual has to offer

Limited Course Capacity

We’re sorry to inform you that we have reached capacity for several of our Semester 1 and Trimester 1 courses. You’ll notice when attempting to enroll students in our Student Learning Portal that some courses are unavailable. While we are no longer accepting new enrollments for these courses at this time, many courses continue to remain open for enrollment.

With many students across the state 100% remote, demand for our online courses is greater than ever before. Because every course we offer is taught by a Michigan-certified teacher, this high volume of enrollments has created capacity issues for our teachers who provide each and every student with individual feedback.

While the Michigan Virtual team anticipated and planned for significant increases in student enrollments this Fall, the increased demand we’ve experienced has been unprecedented. As a result, we are taking steps to hire even more part-and full-time teachers to support larger numbers of student enrollments for Semester 2 as well as for Trimester 2 and 3. 

For schools that still need online learning options this year, please fill out the form at the bottom of our virtual pathways page to meet with someone to discuss other solutions. While some of our teacher-led courses are full, we may still have the capacity to help you in upcoming terms or can discuss timing to implement a whole-school or collaborative program in which local teachers from your school/district use our online course content to teach students. We also have free course content and resources available for you to use.

We know this is an incredibly stressful time for all, and we’re sorry if the courses you’re looking for are unavailable. We never want to turn away a student who wants to learn from us. Our top concern, however, is student success, and we have a policy to not take on additional enrollments if we cannot guarantee that all students will have a quality online learning experience. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unusually high volume of enrollments we are receiving.
