MSC Online Learning offers the same classes all year round. The major difference is who makes the payment for the courses.
To view all available courses, click Available Courses at the top of this page.
Any 7-12 grade student in the state of MN may register and enroll in the MSC Online Learning program. We offer rolling enrollment so students can have flexible, individualized start dates, with courses for all curriculum areas, including career and technical education.
MSC Online is a part-time, non-diploma, supplemental program, so students will remain enrolled in their own districts while taking courses with MSC Online.
Students do not need to take a Part A/Semester 1 course prior to taking a Part B/Semester 2 course if they had passed during the school year. For example, if the student was able to successfully pass the first half of English during the school year, they could take the second part with us to receive the full 1.0 credit for English.
We have many students who complete a year-long course over the summer.
Our summer semester is slightly less than the traditional 18 weeks, but we do offer 2-week extensions, when necessary, to help students that may need a little more time to be successful.
Summer registrations and tuition become the responsibility of the family as schools aren’t required to pay for repeat credits or summer programs that aren’t offered at their location.
With a self-paying registration, your student may register for as many courses as needed. Each of our courses are .5 credits and are $450.
If the course(s) are being paid by the family, a check made out to “MSC Online Learning” should be sent to the following address. In addition to the registration, once payment is received, the course will be opened for student access.

Our courses are not listed as a credit recovery course but can be taken to earn credit for a prior failed course. This applies to all courses offered by MSC Online.
Our courses are delivered electronically and are available 24/7. Students can work ahead of any pacing schedule as the teachers keep pace with the student.
MSC Online Learning does not require any specific log-in class time hours. This allows flexibility for both the student and the instructor.
Any scheduled times to ‘meet’ with the instructor are left between the instructor and the student to arrange in a manner that works best between them (video chat, phone call, etc.).
While there is flexibility in our program, it is important to work on a regular basis. Students can work at their own pace; however, that pace still means progress must be made in the course every week.
Registration is available on our website. We suggest working with your School Counselor to make sure any courses you register for are the credits that are needed. Click on our Course Title to get the syllabus, which can be compared against a school’s course, if needed.
Once courses are requested, a notification is sent to the school to verify information, as required by the MN Department of Education.
