New to NCVirtual
If you’re new to NCVirtual, please visit our Getting Started for Schools page. It will explain our program and give you the necessary details to run a successful online program at your school.
Registration opens Monday, March 29, 2021.
If you are a new e-learning advisor and NCVPS point-of-contact for your school, please update your contact information in our registration system. Click on the “My Info” tab when you log in to update your information. Please remember that there is only one login per school. If your school already has access, you will need to share the login username and password.
If you are new to the NCVPS registration system or need a refresher, watch our NCVPS Registration Video to help guide you through our enrollment process. You can also print our Quick Registration Guide.
Note: Do you need a yearlong or Early Start section that we don’t currently offer? Submit a request through our Virtual Support Center. We’ll see if we can make that happen.
Home and Private School Parents

Waitlist and Course Capacity List
NCVirtual is not a software program. Our online courses are teacher-led, and we are mindful of their class sizes. If your student is waitlisted for a course, that waitlist is usually temporary. Our instructional directors use the waitlist to determine if they should open a new section or increase the size of a current section. However, each semester, we have a few courses that reach their maximum enrollment capacity. To see courses that have capacity issues, visit our Course Capacity List.

Enrolling in Health and PE Courses
If you’re registering for our Health and PE courses, you’ll see the pop-up reminding you about permission forms for those two courses. These forms are for your records that you will keep at your school. You can create your own forms or use ours. See our Health and PE page for details.
Early Course Completion Requests in Standard Start Courses
Our Standard Start fall classes end in January, and our Standard Start spring classes end in late May. Schools may request an early course completion for their students enrolled in Standard Start courses. Early completers in our Standard Start courses will finish their courses on the same date as Early Start students, and their final grades will be included in the Early Start final grade report.
We have a two-step process for requesting an early course completion:
Step 1: Districts and schools must submit our Early Course Completion form. This form will be available at the start of each semester and will be open for four weeks.
Step 2: Communicate your early completion expectations to your students and our NCVirtual teachers. Do this early in the semester so that our teachers have time to adjust the pacing guides for your students.
Communications between the school, student, and teacher are essential in this process.
This process is for Standard Start classes only. Our Early Start classes will report on their original end date.

Our 2021-2022 Course Catalog is posted online. We have a few courses that are undergoing revisions, and they will not be offered next year.
Course Updates and Alerts
See our Course Updates and Alerts page for details on new courses added to the catalog and important alerts about other courses.
Schools will access NCVPS SAR data from either an enrollment report or grade report. See our PowerSchool and NCVPS Registration guide for details. Please do not request data directly from teachers. Thank you!
Student Course Access
Students will have access to their courses at 7 a.m. on the first day of classes. Before classes begin, students can go through our NCVirtual Demo Course for an orientation. We also have Pre-Instruction Resources for each class. These resources help students get a better understanding of courses before classes begin.
Direct students to our Getting Started as an NCVPS Student page before classes begin. This page will help students get oriented and answer all their questions on how our courses work.
NCVirtual has numerous ways for students to get involved online and stay engaged. Visit our Student Life page to see all the clubs, online meetings, and support features available to them.
