SLP: Locate Course Start and End Dates


Course start dates can vary by term so it is important for mentors and school personnel to have the ability to quickly identify when a student should start and finish their course. Please note that any incomplete assignments will not be accessible to students once the course has ended and extensions will only be considered for those meeting the conditions outlined in our Course Extension Policy. This process describes how to locate those dates within the Student Learning Portal.


  1. First, select the Enrollments tap in the top menu bar.
    Note: The Search criteria drop-down menus can be used to narrow results.
  2. Next, tap the Get Data button to display a table of all active enrollment records.
  3. Finally, locate the student enrollment and then view the dates displayed in the “StartDate” and “EndDate” columns.
    The Enrollments page displays a search criteria section that contains various fields to narrow search results. Below the drop-down fields is Get Data and Send buttons. An arrow points to the Get Data button. After the Get Data button is selected, a table containing current enrollment information is displayed. The columns vary, but in this example an arrow points to the Start Date and End Date columns per the instructions above.
    Note: If the dates are not displayed, select the “Customize columns” link at the top of the table, select the columns from the drop-down fields and then tap Save.

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.
