ENROLLMENT AND FEES DEADLINES

Remember that membership fees must be paid for students to receive their passwords and for both parents and students to have access to the Moodle. All registration and tuition fees must be paid in full before students will be allowed to attend chat sessions, unless you have made specific arrangements with the accounts office. Your parent Account Management Center invoice will show any outstanding fees or tuition.

Contact accounts@scholarsonline.org if you have any issues or questions about outstanding tuition or fees.

CHAT and POLICY ORIENTATION SESSIONS

[If you have not yet paid your membership fees, you will not be able to attend orientation!]

To attend orientation sessions, log into the Moodle with your Scholars Online userid and password, click on the "Sign up for orientation" link in the upper left-hand corner of your personal home page, then select the Chat link you wish to review or attend. Chats are only open during the times specified.

If you are unable to attend a session, you may still review logs from earlier sessions.

ATTENDING CLASS

To attend regularly scheduled Scholars Online chat sessions, students use the "Chat Login" link located on the left hand side of any Scholars Online main (non-Moodle) website page, or the "Chat Login" link at the top of your personal Moodle homepage. You will be asked to enter your Scholars Online userid, password, and a nickname that will identify you in class. Unless specifically allowed or encouraged by the teacher, students are expected to use their first name as their nick, plus a middle name or last name initial when two students in a class have the same first name. Once you log in, you will be presented with the selection of that day's chats for your own courses. If you have no chats on a given day, none will be shown, but you may still list logs from previous chat sessions and select any of them for review by using the button at the bottom of the Chat Sessions window.

Some mathematics and language courses use the WizIQ whiteboard interface or use Skype for audio. Students in these classes will receive instructions directly from the teacher on how to log into their WizIQ chat sessions and configure Skype.

SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Scholarships are granted on a case-by-case basis for tuition assistance when students would otherwise be unable to take courses due to job loss, medical expenses, or other family emergencies. Please contact accounts@scholarsonline.org as soon as possible if you wish information about applying for scholarships for our 2017-2018 courses. Most funds for 2017 have been allocated, but you should still contact the Accounts office if you need help. Please consider your request prayerfully; our resources are limited and, once distributed, are not available for other families.

Direct contributions to our scholarship fund are tax-exempt, as Scholars Online is a 501(c)(3) organization. To make a donation by check or online, see our Scholarship page. You may also donate by making purchases from Amazon.com through the Scholars Online Bookstore site or by designated Scholars Online as your charity of choice at http://smile.amazon.com.
