Important Information

Before you begin your course, please read the student handbook. It contains valuable information about our policies and procedures. If you have taken an online course with IU High School before, either on the old Dragon system or IU's Oncourse system, you will find that many procedures, including those for processing assignments, applying for exams, and checking on grades, have changed with the adoption of Canvas.

Unless otherwise specified, all exams are still proctored. Refer to the exam tips lessons and the student handbook for specific information about arranging to take your examinations.

We encourage you to use the Making a Schedule form to create a study schedule that will match your personal needs.
