Paying for Virtual Loudoun
The vision of Virtual Loudoun is to cultivate quality, flexible, self-paced, virtual learning.
Once your registration has been approved by your School Counselor, you have several options to pay for a virtual course. You may pay with a credit card, check, or money order. Please note, no cash payments can be accepted due to the COVID-19 restrictions in place. The preferred method of payment at this time is credit card. The Accounting office is only receiving, processing, and depositing mail once per week. Due to the slowdown in the process, the most efficient and recommended way of collecting payment is to use the online portal. A credit or debit card can be used at no additional charge to the payee.
