Course Info

Interested in taking an online high school course with Indiana Virtual Academy? Wonderful! We’re sure you are bound to have some questions and concerns, so we’ve compiled these frequently asked questions to help get you started.

How Much Will it Cost?

Fees are $295 per semester course, unless….

  • You are a Ripley County student ($190 per regular one semester course)
  • Your school has a partnership agreement with us ($190 per regular one semester course or FREE, contact your school for details.)
  • You are taking a summer course (FREE if your school is on our eligible schools list, or $190 if they are not)

How Long Do I Have?

During the school year you will have 15 weeks to complete a one semester course. For each one semester course you are working on, you can anticipate spending approximately 5-7 hours a week on each semester course. During Summer School, you will have 8 weeks to complete a one semester course, and can anticipate spending approximately 10-20 hours per week on each semester course.

What if I Need More Time or Get Done Sooner?

You may complete the course early if you wish. If you find that you need an extension (during the school year ONLY), you must contact our office one week prior to the end of your course and pay a $25 fee. This will give you a two week extension. Any extension requests after that time period will not be granted. NO EXTENSIONS ARE GRANTED DURING SUMMER SCHOOL.

What if I Need to Drop a Course?

If you wish to drop your course, you must request a drop through the student information system. If you choose to drop the course within 10 business days from the first day of class, you are entitled to a refund of the course cost minus a $50 administrative fee. If you drop the course after the 10 day period but prior to 25 days after class starts, you will receive a refund minus a $100 administrative fee. Any course dropped after 25 days will not be issued a refund of any kind.

**The last drop date for Summer School 2014 is July 7, 2014.
