Division C (Grades 9-12) $325*
*See note below for registration fees using PayPal.
Online Electronic Payment Option
You may always pay the team fee with a personal check or check issued by your district. The Los Angeles County Regional Science Olympiad (LACoRSO) does not have the capability of processing purchase orders. If paying by check exit this page and send your check to complete your registration.
You may also pay the team registration fee online using PayPal. PayPal is a secure, online, payment processing service used by the Los Angeles County Regional Science Olympiad and the Southern California Science Olympiad. Again, this year LACoRSO is partnering with Southern California Science Olympiad to handle all team registrations. There is an additional payment processing fee of $10 that covers handling and verification of all electronic payments. The processing fee is built into the PayPal option for each team registration.
You do not need to have a PayPal account of your own to pay team registration fees using PayPal. Team registration fees can be paid with an existing PayPal account, debit or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express), prepaid gift card, or PayPal credit. You also have the option of creating a PayPal account at the time of payment.
If paying electronically through the PayPal service you will receive a notice that payment has been received. A notice will also be sent to the LACoRSO office.
Note: Registration of a team is "first-completed, first-registered." Registration is considered complete when
- payment has cleared the bank or when PayPal sends and electronic message that fee payment has been made, and
- the principal/school administrator has completed the online acknowledgement of rules and certification of compliance (sent automatically after the online team registration form is received).
Online electronic payments are received by the Southern California Science Olympiad within minutes and there is no waiting for a check to clear the bank.
Payment by Check or Money Order
If paying by personal check or check issued by your district, exit this page and send your check and a Certificate of Insurance to complete your registration (remind the school principal/administrator to complete the online acknowledgement of rules and certification of compliance).
