Before Getting Started

East Shore Online is a supplementary program that works with traditional high schools to provide credit recovery and acceleration opportunities. We require students to remain enrolled in a minimum of 2 classes at a public, charter, or private school. Students must live within the Alpine School District boundaries in order to register with East Shore Online. In order to earn credit, students must have an Alpine District ID number. Please contact the Help Desk with questions on how to obtain one. It is important to note it is not possible to earn a diploma directly from East Shore Online as it is not a stand alone school.

Please Be Aware

NOTICE: Determining how courses fulfill graduation requirements or meet certain eligibility standards can be difficult. Please consult your school counselor before selecting any courses. ESO is dedicated to providing open access to as much curriculum as possible, but you are responsible for all course selections.

If you are a potential NCAA athlete–DO NOT enroll in our courses until you have met with your school counselor.The NCAA does not accept our courses for core credit requirements. Please see for more information.


In-district Students (Alpine School District Students): The annual, non-refundable registration fee is $100, with an additional non-refundable $5 charge for the first curriculum unit.

Out-of-District Students (Private/Charter school students living within the Alpine School District boundaries): The annual, non-refundable registration fee is $100, with an additional $100 fee for out-of-district proctor fees, as well as a non-refundable $5 charge for the first curriculum unit. Please see our Cost and Fees page for more information.

9th Grade Students

Students who have completed 8th grade must wait until after July 1 to start on high school course work with ESO. This requirement is necessary to ensure that grades and credit are transcribed correctly and will count towards high school graduation.

Credit Breakdown

It is important to recognize that the curriculum of East Shore Online is delivered in eighths (⅛), i.e., eight units for a full year course equivalent to 1.0 credit. An eighth of a unit of curriculum is half of a term–which, in a traditional setting is 22 or 23 days. We are giving you 30 days to be on schedule. It is recommended that you work on no more than two courses at a time.

Course Expiration and Renewal

All curriculum units are designed to be completed in 30 days or less. If you do not complete the unit within 30 days, you must pay a $5 renewal fee for an additional 30 days. This can be done online or over the phone by calling our help desk at 801-610-8185. Units can be renewed at any time if the proper fees have been paid. Students will need to start a unit over completely if the unit is over one year old.

Incentive Program

Students may earn a free unit by completing* one unit within 30 calendar days or less from the day of initial purchase (the ONLY exception being over Christmas Break). To redeem a free unit, students must contact their school’s Digital Curriculum Coordinator or email our help desk at [email protected]. Free curriculum units can only be redeemed within 60 days after finishing the previous unit. Typically a coupon code worth $5 is given to the student to redeem their free course. This code expires in 60 days from the day it is given. Once the code has expired, the student will no longer be able to redeem it and will need to pay $5 to purchase a new unit. *Curriculum units are deemed “complete” when all work is finished and the student has received a 70% or higher on assignments and passed the final proctored exam at 65% or higher. The program is not retroactive. Units purchased are NON-REFUNDABLE.

Physical Education Courses

Each unit in a physical education course takes a minimum of 10 hours/ 1 week to complete. Students must be enrolled in the unit for at least 1 week before being able to submit their fitness log. Fitness logs must be completed during the time they are enrolled and cannot overlap with another unit’s log including in a different course.

Testing Policies

All final exams must be taken with a proctor. The course must be active and all course work submitted and passing with a 70% or higher in order to test. Once the test is taken all grades are locked in and no coursework may be resubmitted. Students have a limit of three exam attempts and must wait at least 1 business day between attempts. After the third attempt students will be required to restart the course. Exams are closed book and closed notes. Retakes are available up to 1 term after the test was first taken. All renewal fees are applicable. When a student retakes an already passed exam for a better score they must inform the Help Desk so their grade can be changed in Skyward. When needed, students may use translation services on proctored final exams.

Credit Posting to Transcript

Credit earned by Alpine School District students is uploaded to Skyward at midnight every business day by ESO.
Regarding Summer Courses: Credit is posted to Skyward at the end of Summer. Credit earned from June 1 to July 1 posts to the 4th term transcript of the previous year. Credit earned from July 1 to the first day of school posts to the first term transcript of the new school year.

The grade posted to the student’s transcript is the average of all completed curriculum units within a course during the term.

Teacher Communication and Grading Turnaround Time

East Shore Online teachers are expected to grade and/ or reply to student communication within one full business day. For example, if a student submits an assignment at 2 p.m. on Tuesday it will be graded by the end of the Wednesday business day. Please note business days only include when ESO is open.
