Cost and Payment Options
Illinois Virtual School (IVS) receives dollars from the Illinois State Board of Education to help support its state-wide online program. The following course fees are charged for enrollment:
- Full Service Courses are $240 per semester course.
- Credit Recovery Courses are $95 per semester course.
- Middle School Learning Recovery and Bridge courses are $95 per course.
Schools may select only one payment option for all enrollments. A school cannot request different options for individual students/cases. If the school pays for some students' course fees and not others, the school will need to continue to be the responsible party for IVS course fees. Extension invoices will be sent according to payment responsibility selected by the school.
The IVS Student Information System’s default identifies the local school or home school as the entity responsible for course fees. With School-based payment, all IVS student enrollments are invoiced to the school. Currently, IVS invoices are sent to the school Invoice Contact and Registrar(s) after the grace period (last day to drop without charge) has passed. Full Service courses and Credit Recovery courses will be invoiced together by calendar month. Invoices will be available to view online and download via the IVS Student Information System.
Help Guides for viewing and downloading invoices will be available on the IVS Help Center section for Schools.
All enrollments remaining after the grace period are considered non-refundable, and the school is responsible for dropping students upon request.
IVS does offer course-specific scholarships for students. Please visit our Scholarships page to view current scholarship opportunties.
