SLP: Associate Multiple Students to a Mentor


A school user can associate multiple students to one mentor within their affiliation in the Student Learning Portal. This process describes how to make that association.


  1. First, tap the Students tab in the top menu bar.
  2. Then select Bulk Association from the left navigation menu.
  3. Next, choose the school from the Affiliations drop-down menu.
  4. Tap the Get Data button to reveal all students within your affiliation.
    Note: To narrow your results, use the 18 unique fields to filter results before tapping the Get Data button. The fields can be used to filter by: Affiliation, School, Status, Grade Level, Special Ed, Gender, LEP/ELL, Statue, Free/Reduced Lunch, Zip, Currently Enrolled, Term, Ever Enrolled, Course, Flag, Birth Between (dates) or Custom Fields.
  5. At this point, place a check in the box located in the “Select” column of the student rows. If all students in the results need to be associated with the one mentor, tap the Check All box at the top of the tabled results.
  6. When finished, tap the Bulk Association button at the bottom of the results table.
    The Bulk Association page contains a Search criteria section that contains the 18 unique fields to be used for the purpose of filtering results. An arrow pointes to the get data button that appears at the bottom of the search criteria section. Once the button has been selected, a table appears below displaying student information in multiple columns. An arrow points to the Check All box at the top of the table which places a check next to all student names that appear in the table. Another arrow points to the Bulk Association button at the bottom of the page.
  7. As a result, a pop-up window will appear, choose “MENTOR” from the Role field and then choose the mentor to be associated with these students.
  8. Finally, tap the Save button to apply your associations.
    The Bulk Association pop-up dialog box reads, “Clicking on Save will Add new association the 3 selected students.” The Role and User drop-down menus appear below the message. An arrow points to the Save button below the drop-down fields.

If needed, this action can be reversed by following the Unassociate Multiple Students from a Mentor process.

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.
