At the end of the term, Michigan Virtual’s Student Learning Portal will generate a certificate of completion. The certificate contains a score (percentage), the instructor(s) and course name. Michigan Virtual will not distribute the certificate of completion or a formal transcript to the student’s local school.

Guardians or students may provide the certificate to the local school. It is the responsibility of the local school to assign the letter grade they deem appropriate on the student’s transcript. Please note mentors do not have the ability to print certificates, students must access their Student Learning Portal dashboard to print the certificate.

This process describes how to save or print the certificate of completion in the event a school requests a copy.


  1. First, log in to the Student Learning Portal to view the Completed Courses module within the Dashboard.
  2. Next, locate the course of interest within the grid and then tap the View Certificate link in the “Certificate” column.
    The Dahsboard is showing the top 3 modules, Academic Snapshot, Completed Courses, and Upcoming Events. Completed Courses is the middle widget and it contains a table listing one completed course. The table contains 4 headers, Course (Name), Final Grade, Completion Date, and Certificate. An arrow points to the linked text, “View Certificate” in the Certificate column.
  3. At this time, the PDF file containing the certificate will open.
  4. Finally, hover over the top right of the page to select the download and print icons.
    • If downloading or saving a copy of the certificate, choose the folder in which the file should be saved and then click the Save button.
    • If printing, change any print settings if desired and then select the Print button.

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.
