SLP: When will my course start and end?


Knowing start and end dates is important for students beginning and finishing a course. Courses that are taken within the same term can vary in start and end dates. It is essential to note that the course and any incomplete work cannot be accessed after the class end date and course extensions are only considered when specific conditions are met. This process describes how to find course dates within the Student Learning Portal.


  1. First, tap the Gradebook option from the left navigation menu.
  2. As a result, the Gradebook page will display a table at the top of the page. The table shows multiple columns which provide details for each actively enrolled course.
  3. Finally, locate the Start and End columns for each course row.
    The Gradebook page is shown and divided into two sections. The first section includes a table containing the course or courses that the student is enrolled. The second section shows the grade details of the selected course. The grade details includes the Assignment name, Possible Points, Grade Received and Completion Date.

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.
