MOCC: Creating Course Offerings


Course offerings are to be created after the syllabi has been added and when terms and pricing have been set. This process describes how to create those offerings in Michigan’s Online Course Catalog.

Note: If a district is only offering the online course to students within its district, the district can satisfy the 21f requirements of providing Michigan Virtual with the course syllabi information in a form and method prescribed by the department by completing only the Add New Course Syllabi and Course Review steps. By opting not to create a course offering with terms and pricing, however, the course syllabi and review will not appear in the Local District Catalog search interface available through Michigan’s Online Course Catalog.


  1. First, click on the Course Management icon and then select Search Course Offering.
  2. At this point, tap the Add New button.
    Screen capture of the Search Course Offering page with an arrow pointing to the Add New button located below the search fields.
  3. Next, select the appropriate catalog in which the course will be displayed and choose the appropriate term that the course will be available by using the drop-down fields.
    Screen capture of the Add New Course Offerings page with arrows pointing to the Select Catalog and Select Term fields within the Select Term tab.
  4. Then use the filters to narrow your search results or simply look in the grid below to select a course(s) you added during the Add New Course Syllabi process. Proceed by placing a check next to the courses that you would like to associate the term with. When all of the appropriate courses are selected, click the Continue button.
    Screen capture of the Add New Course Offering page with arrows pointing to the course row checkbox and to the Continue button.
  5. The selected courses will now require you to assign the appropriate pricing option.
    Note: To Manage Pricing on all courses, use the drop-down menu at the top of the grid.
  6. Continue by pressing the Save & Continue button.
    Screen capture of the Add New Course Offering page with the Add Pricing tab selected. Two arrows point to the Pricing column drop-down menu and to the Save and Continue button.
  7. Next, assign the number of seats available in the course by entering the appropriate number in the “Enter Number of Seats” column.
    Note: To apply the same number of seats to all courses, use the drop-down menu at the top of the grid.
  8. Finally, tap the Submit button.
    Screen capture of the Add New Course Offering page with the Add Seats tab selected. Arrows point to the Enter Number of Seats text box and to the Submit button.

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.
