SLP: Change Student Status in Bulk


When a student graduates or leaves a school, his or her status may be updated to “Alumni” status within in the Student Learning Portal. Student should not be removed or deleted from the Student Learning portal as their course information may need to be retrieved in the future. This process describes how an affiliation user will change student status for multiple students at once.


  1. First, within the Student Learning Portal tap Students from the top menu bar.
  2. Next, select Bulk Status from the left navigation menu.
  3. Then use the filters to narrow search results and tap the Get Data button to reveal students.
    For example: Use the Grade Level drop-down menu to select students in the 12th grade.
    IMPORTANT: Students with current enrollments should not be updated to Alumni status. Using the “Currently Enrolled” filter may be helpful.
    Bulk status page is shown with top and left menus and search criteria section. Arrows point to the Students tap in top menu and to the Bulk Status option in the left. Another arrow points to the Get Data button within the Search Criteria section below the filters.
  4. At this point, select the students who will require a status change by placing a check mark in the box located to the left (Select column).
  5. Once all students have been selected, tap the Bulk Status button at the bottom of the page.
  6. As a result, a pop-up box will appear, use the Status drop-down to choose “ALUMNI” for students who graduated.
    Note: At this time, “BLOCKED” status is only used for students who should to be prevented from registering for any course within the SLP.
  7. Next, to apply changes, tap the Save button.
    The Bulk Status change page is shown expanding the search results section only. Arrows point to the Check All box on the left side of the page as well as the Bulk Status button at the bottom. The pop-up window referenced above is also shown with arrows pointing to the drop-down menu and to the Save 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.
