Enrolling in an INFINITY course is a straightforward process which students and parents can do on their own, although we strongly encourage you to work with your school guidance counselor, as he/she can help facilitate and streamline the process as well as offer guidance regarding needed courses and credits and the likelihood of success for individual students.
Students and their parents must review the following INFINITY policies which outline the expectations of online learning:
Review the course catalog to read the course description
of the course(s) you are considering.
Student will create an account in the GENIUS online registration system
and request the courses they are interested in taking. The creation of this New Student User Account and the Request for Courses will generate an automatic email sent to the both the parent/guardian and the student’s enrolling district or counselor. This is the first notification that a student at your school is requesting an online course.

Parent/guardian will receive an email notification of their students intent to enroll, along with a separate username and password, and must login to affirm the student's courses. Website to affirm your student's course choices: http://mn.geniussis.com/PublicWelcome.aspx
Note: Parents wishing to audit their student's online course must request access to the Desire2Learn course management system (which is separate from the GENIUS registration system). Please call the Infinity office (800-624-4072) if you would like this setup.
Counselor will receive an email notification of a student in their district who intends to enroll in an online course. The counselor must login to update the certain student profile information (MARSS number, IEP, etc.;) and verify the courses being requested.
After the requested course(s) are affirmed online by the parent and verified online by the counselor, INFINITY Online will enroll the student in the course. The student, parent, and counselor will all be sent an automatic email confirming the student's enrollment into the requested course is complete.
Several weeks prior to the start of the online term, students will receive an email with login instructions on how to get started with their online course.
