Course Cost

Thanks to the support from the Governor and the state legislature CDLS is expanding options to support online learning in the fall available through Colorado Empowered Learning and the state supplemental program. Base registration fees for 2020-21 are $100 for 6-12 courses and $150 for K-5 students.  See information on the 2020/21 Options for complete details on the options to support schools and districts for the 2020-21 school year.


All courses for 2020-21 will continue to include access to courses facilitated and monitored by a licensed and qualified online Colorado instructor.

Course cost for non-public/private Colorado students or non-Colorado (out of state) students is $350 per student per course per semester.

Invoicing for each semester takes place following the drop date for each semester.   Any drops requested after the posted drop date will be assessed the full course fee, and districts/schools will be billed the full amount for all students on the roster. 


Beginning with the 2020-21 school year CDLS will only accept payments from districts, BOCES, and charter schools for student registrations.  If course costs are not covered by the school/district, parents will have to make payment arrangements through their school or district.

Students are responsible for their own internet connection and computer, if not provided by the school.
