MOCC: Approve or Deny Registration Requests


District catalog managers can handle incoming registration requests submitted by students in their district by reviewing information and either approving or denying the requests. This document describes how to mange those requests.


  1. First, select the Enrollment Management tab from the top of the screen.
    Note: By default all requests fall under the “Pending Registration” status when submitted and then displayed first.
  2. Next, view all registration requests by status by selecting an option from the Status drop-down list.
  3. Then approve or deny a pending request by clicking the linked text in the Details column.
    Screen capture of the Manage Primary Enrollments page displaying the Year and Status filters and the results grid below the Search button. Arrows point to the Status field and to the view text that appears in the Details column of the grid.
  4. Next, review the details submitted in the form, then complete the process of either approval or denial of the registration request.

Approve the Request

  1. First, scroll to enable the radio button in the “Is Selected” column to choose the desired term.
  2. Next, enter the required Mentor Name for the enrollment.
  3. Then select the Payment Method from the options available.
  4. Next, populate the required fields indicated with an asterisk.
  5. When finished, click the Approve button which will change the status to “Pending Enrollment”.

  6. Finally, the catalog manager from the providing district will then need to approve the enrollment. At this time you will receive a confirmation email and a system confirmation message. The feedback message will also include the language from the providing district on how to submit payment based on the payment method selected.

Deny the Request

  1. First, select the Deny button at the bottom of the form.
  2. Next, select the radio button next to the proper explanation in the Select Reason for Denial window.

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.
