SLP: Change Student to Alumni Status


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 modify the status for those students. For changes needed in bulk, see SLP: Change Student Status in Bulk.


  1. First, sign in to the Student Learning Portal.
  2. Next, tap the Students tab in the top menu bar to display a list of students who have or are currently taking courses.
  3. Then select the appropriate linked name within the Student column. As a result, the student’s basic information will be displayed and will show the students “Active” status.
  4. At this point, tap Edit Information on the left navigation bar.
  5. Now the basic information can be modified.
  6. Next, tap the Status drop-down field and choose Alumni.
    IMPORTANT: Do not update a student’s status to Alumni if they have current enrollments.
    Three arrows are present to identify the location of the Students tab, Edit information option and finally to the Status drop-down field.
  7. Finally, apply changes by tapping the Save button located at the bottom of the page.

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.
