Registration Policies and Procedures
MLK provides opportunities for students in Fayette County (public school students, students attending private, parochial and home schools) to meet their education needs through online work. Students may enroll in individual courses to eliminate deficiencies on high school transcripts and to earn additional credits toward graduation or for enrichment purposes.
1. Students must obtain an application from their school counselor listing each ½ credit course to be taken. Applications must be filled out completely.
2. All information requested on the application must be completed in order to be processed.
3. The student’s counselor must sign the application to verify approval of course(s) to be taken.
4. Applications must be submitted to Lolita Godoy or Rita Stamey at MLK by mail, email, fax or on-line application.
5. Students and parents (if under 18) are required to attend an orientation meeting to receive eschool instructions. This process is done by appointment only and you will be contacted by email.
6. Students will only be permitted to work on one course at a time, once a student completes a course we will then request the next course on the students list.
7. ESchool fees are $125 per semester (fall, spring, or summer) for one course, or a maximum of $250 per semester which allows the student the opportunity to complete as many courses as possible during the semester. If a student continues into the next semester, a fee for that semester will be required. Please be advised that once a course has been started students must complete the course within the semester or a maximum of 120 days, which might be less than a semester.

If students discontinue a course and request a refund within one month from the date of enrollment, a refund of the tuition is paid minus a $5 processing fee, the refund request must include a parent signature and an address for the refund to be mailed. No refunds are made after the one-month period and all refunds are mailed to the parent.
