Enrollment Procedures Students may register for an eCampus Virtual High School course by completing and submitting a signed registration and full time equivalency forms to the guidance counselor. Parent and counselor must sign the registration form. Furthermore, there is a mandatory online orientation that students are required to attend. The mandatory online orientation course is typically held the second Wednesday evening of each semester (e.g., August, January, and May).
In addition, the school principal, guidance counselor or eCampus Administrator may also initiate the enrollment process by sending the registration form to be completed by the student’s parent. If payment is required, communication will be sent to parents/guardians with instructions on how to pay. Registration is not complete until the counselor has submitted registration and full time equivalency forms to eCampus office and tuition (if applicable) has been paid. Once tuition and forms have been received and processed and student has attended the mandatory online orientation, any supplied course materials will be made available to the student. Any required student purchased materials should be immediately secured by the student. eCampus Virtual High School follows the normal high school semester calendar and is not an open-entry, open-exit program. However, in certain situations, registration dates and final registration deadlines may be extended for a student upon approval by the eCampus staff and administration. All course selection and graduation planning should be done through the student’s home school with the assistance of their guidance counselor. All required registration forms are available on the eCampus website.
Tuition and Fees
There is no tuition charge for a student if the student is taking the online course as a part of their regular course load. The following tuition is applicable for students taking an online course that is outside their regular schedule, students taking a summer school course, or out-of-district students who are not enrolled in a Peoria Unified school:
- $300 per FULL credit course
- $150 per HALF credit course
Any student who is considering taking an online course in lieu of a traditional course is required to meet with his/her guidance counselor to determine if taking an online course is the best option for the student.
If tuition is required, it must be paid by credit card, check, or cash at District Administration Center located at 6330 West Thunderbird Rd., Glendale, AZ 85306. Students and/or parents should contact the eCampus secretary at 623-412-5345 with any payment questions.
Note: A “Request to Drop Form” must be submitted to the student's home school guidance counselor in order for the student to be officially dropped from the course.
- Within two weeks of the start of class, a student may cancel enrollment (drop a class) and receive a reimbursement of any tuition paid. The time frame to receive a refund changes during the summer. During summer sessions, a student can receive a refund only if they drop the class during the first week of the session.
- Additionally, a student who has not communicated with their online teacher within 2 weeks of the start of class or has not been active in the course for two consecutive weeks will be dropped from the course and tuition will not be reimbursed.
- A student requesting to drop a class during weeks 3-6 of the semester will not receive a refund. The class will not appear on the student’s transcript.
- A student requesting to drop a class after the 6th week of the semester will not receive a refund.
- Students who drop an eCampus course two weeks after the first grade in progress and are earning a failing grade will get an “F” on their transcript. If a student is earning a passing grade and drops the course after that time period, the grade will appear as a “W” on the transcript. Dropped classes may be retaken and the higher grade will be used for GPA purposes.
- A student who has not completed the course by the end of the semester will not have any tuition reimbursed. If an extension is granted by the instructor and administration, the student’s current grade will be posted to their transcript and the student will be given two additional weeks to complete the required coursework. If the student completes the course within the two-week extension and the student’s grade improves, the instructor will submit the required documentation to eCampus administration and the student’s transcript will be updated. If the student’s grade does not change as a result of the two-week extension, then the posted grade will remain on the student’s transcript.
- Extensions will only be granted if the student is missing a few assignments and the final exam and if the student has tracked the required 400 weekly minutes in the eCampus student tracking system.
