Introduction:

Mentors and affiliation users may need to find important course details such as prerequisites, materials needed, expectations and standards. The Student Learning Portal offers a searchable list of those courses in the Course Catalog.

Details:

  1. First, tap the Course Catalog tab in the top menu bar.
  2. As a result, a welcome page shows fields that can be used to limit the number of courses that appear in the results table using the information below. Skip to step 4 if you choose to view all available courses.
    • To find specific text within a course name, insert the text to search in the Search by Course Title field.
    • To filter the results by term, use the Term drop-down field.
    • If you want to search for a certain course type, choose an option from the Catalog drop-down field. For example, if you are searching for advanced placement courses only, select “AP Courses” from this field.
    • Results can be filtered by a subject area. To do this, choose an available option from the Subject drop-down field.
    • The Instructor Provider field can be used to filter by the results by the instructor’s content provider.
    • If you need to filter results to show either “High School” or “Middle School,” use the School Level drop-down field.
    • To filter results by NCAA approved courses, select either “Yes” or “No” from the NCAA Approved drop-down field.
    • The Content Provider drop-down field can be used to narrow results by the course provider.
  3. Next, tap the Apply Filter button to update the results displayed in the table.
  4. Then review each row (course) which contains information in columns that pertain to the course.
    • The “Course” column will show a linked course name; if selected, a new window will open displaying a detailed description of the course as well as the course syllabus.
    • Remaining column headers in the table include Course Name, When Offered, Subject, Catalog, School Level, Instructor Provider, NCAA Approved and Content Provider.
  5. Finally, if you are interested, continue to Enroll Students in a Course.
    The Course Catalog page is separated into two sections. The first contains eight fields as described above. An arrow points to the Apply filter button just below the search fields. The second section contains a table of results as mentioned above.

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.
