Registration Details

Registration Details

Registration opens Monday, March 29, 2021.

Enroll students through the NCVPS registration system. If you need access, contact our Virtual Support Center.

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

If you are a home school or private school, visit our Home & Private Schools page.

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 OCS Courses

See our new OCS Program page before enrolling in NCVPS courses. We have streamlined the process. Watch our OCS Registration Video to help with the OCS registration process.

Change in OCS Course Titles

We are updating our OCS course titles to align with DPI guidelines. OCS courses will now be identified as “Blended” in our course catalog and registration system. Be sure to search for “Blended” in our registration system. Here are the changes that you will see:

Enrolling in Intervention Co-Teaching Courses

We have a new Intervention Co-Teaching Program page that gives details on the program and enrollment process. Watch our Intervention Co-Teaching Video to see the enrollment process.

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.
