Supplemental (part-time) enrollment in Online Learning (Non-Resident and Resident District)

Supplemental enrollment means a student enrolls in online learning classes in addition to their local school classes. Enrollment in supplemental online learning courses as part of a student’s full-time schedule during the school year is limited to a maximum of half of a student’s full schedule of courses per term.

MPS district students may enroll for one supplemental class per quarter in addition to their full-time schedule.  There is a fee for Non-MPS students wishing to enroll in supplemental classes beyond their tradition school day schedule ($195 per quarter credit).

Here's how to get started:

  1. Find a course that best suits your needs. All of our courses are accredited to earn high school credit in Minnesota.
  2. Meet with your current school counselor to discuss your plan. Make sure you are meeting all local academic requirements. Request that your current school sends your records to MPS Online Learning.
  3. Submit the ONLINE LEARNING APPLICATION on this website.
    • If you are applying for a Health or PE class, please note that there are limited seats available. This means that Seniors and Juniors will have preference over other students. Sophomores and Freshman may be placed on a waiting list.
  4. Complete the Online Registration form and signed Approval form from Parent or Guardian and Counselor.
