Before a mentor can be assigned or associated to a student, he or she must have an account created in the Student Learning Portal. This process describes how a school user will add the account profile for a mentor for their local school.


  1. First, select the Affiliations tab in the top menu bar.
    Note: Not all users will have the ability to view the Affiliations tab. If you do not see this tab, please see your school admin.
  2. Next, click the linked school in the “Name” column within the grid.
    The Affiliations page shows the schools that you are associated within a table containing 12 columns of school-related data. An arrow is pointing to the linked school in the Name column as mentioned above.
  3. Then, click the Add Mentors option from the left navigation menu.
  4. Then insert the mentor information:
    1. Start by typing the mentors unique email address in the Email field.
    2. Next, type the credentials the mentor will use to access the Student Learning Portal in the Password field.
    3. Then insert the mentor’s First Name and Last Name into the open text fields.
    4. Next, tap the Role drop-down field to select the “MENTOR” role.
    5. If available, insert the mentor’s contact number in the Phone field.
    6. Then if desired, populate the mentor’s Signature in the editor box.
  5. Finally, tap the Create button to apply changes and add the profile.
    The Add Mentors form is displayed showing the fields described above. An arrow points to the Create button at the bottom of the Signature text box.

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.
