SLP: Add Student Account

Introduction:

Students who need to be enrolled in a Michigan Virtual course must have an account in the Student Learning Portal. The process below describes how a school user will add a single student account. To add multiple students at once, proceed to the Import List of Student Accounts article.

Note: After a student account is created, the system will automatically make a guardian account. Once the student has been enrolled in a course, an email message will be sent to the guardian which will contain their account setup instructions. These accounts are generated with the intent of keeping guardians informed of student progress.
