We have a new student management system so all users (new or returning) will need to sign up.

With rolling enrollment, students can have flexible, individualized start dates.

REMEMBER: While there is flexibility in our program, it is important to work on a regular basis.


Students may only drop a course during the initial ten (10) calendar day period calculated from the date of the enrollment notification email.

Mission Statement
MSC Online Learning Program-
Expanding quality online educational opportunities
for Minnesota students
* * *

This learning community is sponsored by the Northeast Service Cooperative in collaboration with our member school districts.

The MSC Online Learning Program:

  • Provides challenging educational opportunities for students who need credit recovery, advanced, additional or specialized courses, and/or a flexible learning environment.
  • Is certified by the Minnesota Department of Education to offer online curriculum to students in grades 7-12. All online courses offered through approved programs are:
- Taught by Minnesota licensed teachers
- Meet or exceed state academic standards
- Transfer to other public school districts
- Apply toward high school graduation
    • Is a part-time, non-diploma, supplemental program, so students will remain enrolled in their own districts while taking courses with MSC Online.
