The Professional Learning Portal offers online courses to learners for the purpose of obtaining State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH) credits and/or completing professional development requirements. This document describes how to edit learner account information and/or change the password to access the portal.


  1. First, select Edit Account from the left menu.
    Note: After logging in to the Professional Learning Portal, you might automatically land on this page to review and update the information.
    The Edit Account option is displaed in the far left navigation menu. An arrow points to this selected option.

  2. To ensure you can access your account, reset passwords and receive enrollment and completion information, it is essential that your email address is correct and current. If your email address is no longer your preferred email address, please contact our Customer Support
  3. If you are an educator in Michigan, and wish to receive SCECHs to be able to renew your certification, please ensure your name is in the exact same format as in MOECS, and you have selected “I have a PIC”, and entered the correct PIC. Learn how to find your PIC. If you select “I don’t have a PIC”, we will not be able to process your SCECHs for you.
  4. Ensure your cell phone number is current and in the correct format: XXX-XXX-XXXX or +XX-XXX-XXX-XXXX.
    Note: Once you have provided your phone number, you can enter your phone number when you want to request a link to reset your password.
    Account details are shown for a test user. The noted phone number field is shown to display the dashes within the phone number.
  5. Please verify your location information. Select first, whether you are working for a school or school district, and then whether you are within Michigan.
    • If you are within Michigan, you’ll be able to choose the county and school district. If you are working for a private or charter school, please select them instead; you will find those listed together with the school districts.
    • If you are outside of Michigan, please select your country. If you are within the United States, please also select the state.
  6. Next, review the role and certification information, before you confirm that you updated your account.
  7. If you need to change your password, scroll down on the same page, then select the Change my password checkbox.
  8. Enter your existing password in the Old Password field, type the desired password in the New Password field and then retype the desired password in the Confirm Password field.
  9. Finally, select the Change my Password button to apply the new password.
    Note: Your password must contain at least 8 characters, upper and lower case letters, at least one number and one symbol.
    The remaining fields of account information are shown as well as the change password section as mentioned above. Arrows point to the Update Account and Change Password buttons.

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.
