Add Student Account

Intended Audience: Collaborative Admin Users
This article pertains to courses taught by local teachers as part of a collaborative partnership.


To enroll in a Michigan Virtual course, a student must first have an account in the Student Learning Portal (SLP). The steps below outline how to add a single student account, as performed by a collaborative admin user. To add multiple student accounts simultaneously, please refer to the Add Students in Bulk article.

Upon creating a student account, a corresponding guardian account will be automatically generated by the system. Following enrollment in a course, the guardian will receive an email containing account setup instructions, as these accounts are intended to keep guardians informed of student progress.
