Are You A Good Candidate for Online Learning?
The MSC Online Learning Program is committed to providing equal access to high quality online learning opportunities for all students. Taking an online course can be a great experience, but it does require technology skills, good time management, and being able to work independently. Online courses are different. Instead of learning by listening, you will learn by doing- by reading, writing, and other learning activities.
Districts are responsible to provide Level 1 technical support for their students (personal technology skills, desktop/laptop computer and software).
In general, lightweight devices such as Chromebooks, tablets and iPads have very limited technology support and may
not be compatible with the majority of course content. Students may need to take a few extra steps to work within the confines of their device configuration. We recommend students also have a computer available to complete coursework in the event that their mobile device does not meet the needs of a course.
We’re proud to announce new Chromebook-friendly activities are being incorporated into many of our courses with a separate Chromebook tab.

Students are required to have a personal email address in order to register. This can be a school account or a free web-based account like Gmail.
A parent/guardian can not use the same email address as the student if access to the student's online activity is desired.
All registration and course information will be sent via email only, from a noreply@ address. Verify your email filters will allow receipt.
We only recommend using Firefox or Chrome for your internet browser to access courses. Students will also need computer access for many course requirements. Due
to the wide array of technologies, there are limitations to
browsers and devices we can support.
All registrations must be verified by a school official. Once received
by MSC Online, it may take up to 10 days to process a registration. Early semester registrations are encouraged, but keep in mind course access will only be given near/at the semester start date. All registration and course information will be sent via email only, from a noreply@ address. Verify your email filters will allow receipt.
Payment, if required,
must also be received prior for course access.
For all completed courses submitted to MDE for funding, 12% of the ADM associated with that course is distributed to the enrolling district, and 88% of the ADM for the course is distributed to the online provider. The enrolling district must continue to report the student in MARRS and the online provider district will submit a course completion file to MDE to generate funding.
