Once a learner has completed a course within the Professional Learning Portal the course may not immediately display in the Completed Courses module within the Dashboard. The list below describes why.

  • Blended and Online Facilitated course grades are released by the instructor who may choose to release grades only when all learners have finished the course.
  • Other self-paced courses may post grades immediately depending on how the course was designed.

If applicable to your course, State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH) credits will be uploaded to the Michigan Online Educator Certification system (MOECS) within 10 business days from the completion date.

This process describes how learners can view the course completion status.


  1. First, access the Professional Learning Portal.
  2. Next, log in with your email and password in the appropriate fields then select the Login button.The PLP login page is shown with Email and Password fields. Along with forgot your password and create an account links. Below also is the login button.
  3. The Dashboard will then appear and the course will be displayed in the Active Courses or Completed Courses modules.
    • For courses in the Active Courses list, in addition to the course title, the guaranteed course access dates are listed.
      1. You will not be able to access your course if the start date of the course is still in the future.
      2. You might be dropped from the course at any point, if the end date of the course has passed.
        As mentioned above, the dashboard is shown with the Bloodborne Pathogens course shown. An arrow points to the course tile within the Active Courses module.
  4. If your course is fully completed, it will appear in the Completed Courses list after about 12 hours. For completed courses, the completion date and the achieved grade are displayed next to the course title. Clicking on a completed course will allow you to download the course completion certificate.
  5. If you feel your course should appear in the Completed Courses list, but it is still marked as active, this can have several reasons:
    • It takes about 12 hours after you successfully completed all activities for the completion certificate to be generated and the course to appear in the Completed Courses list.
      • One of the activities in the course might not be completed successfully, please access the course by clicking on the course tile, and check your gradebook in the course.
      • Some activities in our courses require instructor feedback. Please check the course to learn when you can expect to be graded. 
      • Facilitated courses might not release the grades until the end date of the course has passed. Please check your course whether that is the case.
  6. Once your course is displayed in the Completed Courses list, Michigan Virtual will process your completion. If the course is eligible for SCECHs, and you have provided your PIC and name exactly as they are listed in MOECS, then our SCECH coordinator will upload your SCECHs within 10 business days to MOECS.

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.
