This process describes how a guardian will purchase an enrollment in the Student Learning Portal for their student after you have Selected a Course.


  1. First, take note of important dates displayed at the top of the Course Confirmation page:
    1. Start Date is the date that your student will have access to their course and can begin.
    2. End Date is the day that the course will end and the student will no longer have access to the course.
    3. Last day for Refund is the final date that you will be able to drop this course and obtain a refund.
      The Course Confirmation grid is shown with three arrows pointing to the dates mentioned above.
      Note: If you selected a start date that is prior to today’s date, the course will not run the full 20, 13 or 10-week duration. 
  2. Next, choose a network from the Credit card type drop-down field.
  3. Then insert the account number in the Credit card number field.
  4. Next, choose the Expiration month using the drop-down field.
  5. Then choose the Expiration year using the drop-down fields.
  6. At this point, type the Card Verification Value in the CVV2 field.
  7. Continue by providing the billing information which includes: First Name, Last Name, Address, City, State and Zip Code.
  8. Then press the Make Payment button to process the payment and enroll your student.
    The Course Confirmation page shows the total cost and the number of courses selected to be purchased just above a table containing the course name, when offered, subject, catalog and amount. Below the table, the payment fields mentioned above are displayed above the Make Payment and Change Course buttons.
  9. A message will be displayed that reads, “Than you for your payment, you will receive an email with further instructions shortly.” Centered below the message, tap the “Go to Dashboard” link. If you receive an error, proceed to the Transaction Failed process.
  10. Finally, continue to your Dashboard.

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.
