When a course is complete and a final grade is set, users will receive a completion certificate. This process describes how to locate a certificate for a completed course within the Professional Learning Portal.


  1. Begin by accessing the Professional Learning Portal.
  2. On your dashboard, the “Completed Courses” are listed in the first row on the right hand side.
    The Professional Learning Portal dashboard is shown with the various modules, active courses, completed courses, pending courses and learning paths. An arrow points to the completed courses module.
  3. To access your certificate, click on the course tile. A pop-up on the left-hand side will allow you to select the “Download Certificate” link.
    On the right side of the page the Completed Courses module is shown. With the first completed course selected, there is an option to download the certificate. An arrow points to that option.
  4. The next action depends on your browser settings. As a result the file might be automatically downloaded, a new window might open, or you might be able to select whether you would like to save or open the file. If you opened the file, hover over the top portion of the downloaded file to use the print or save options within the PDF.

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.
