School Add Student Account

Intended Audience: Affiliation Users


To enroll a student in a Michigan Virtual course, they must first have an account created in the Student Learning Portal (SLP). This process explains how an affiliation user can add a single student account. If you need to add multiple students at once, refer to the Import List of Student Accounts article.

Note: When a student account is created, a corresponding guardian account will be automatically generated. Once the student is enrolled in a course, the guardian will receive an email containing instructions to set up their account. These accounts are designed to keep guardians informed about their student's progress.
