Not at all. Everything you do on HiH is free. You open a (fake) Gringotts Vault online and are given (fake) galleons, which are used to 'purchase' in-site items like books and equipment.

How can I earn more House Points?
House Points are earned by playing Hogwarts Trivia, or by completing your assignments.
Should I register as myself, or a roleplay character?
The website sort of plays up both angles, so it's entirely up to you. Many people use the site as a RP experience, and some want to feel like it's their life.
Is this as legitimate educational institution?
... just because it is online, doesn't mean that it isn't real. Credits are only valid between other Wizarding Institutions. Sorry!
What should I use for my Profile URL?
You can use anything from a username to a nickname to an abbreviation of your own name. This is only used when others visit your profile, or when you want to share your profile with others. It will appear as hogwartsishere.com/YourProfileURLHere.
How do I enroll in courses?
Once you sign up and get access to your account, you can view our list of courses by visiting "Hogwarts Courses" under the left-hand "Hogwarts" menu. Click on the "Course Directory" option to see a list of courses. Open the course you desire and you can enroll by clicking the "Enroll Now" link in the left-hand menu.
When are my assignments due?
As a first year, you can take as long as you need to submit an assignment. There are no due dates. You will not be penalized for not completing an assignment by a certain time.
Can I drop a course?
You cannot, because you will need all required courses to move to Second Year. If you are not interested in attending Courses, you can still keep and enjoy your account.
Do I have to do homework and participate in courses to use the website?
Courses are not required for you to maintain your account. You can choose to enroll or not, it's up to you!
When will my assignment be graded?
As soon as we can get to it! It could take up to a few days. Our professors have many students and limited wands!
Is the course work intense? I have Muggle School too...
It's not so bad. Plus, First Year doesn't have due dates, so you can take your time! The best thing you can do is enroll, see how you like it, and go from there. It doesn't hurt to try!
When will I be able to access the next lesson?
You must complete all assignments in your current lesson to move onto the next lesson.
How can I move to Second Year?
When you complete all the required courses from first year, you can advance to second year by choosing "Advance Years" from the main "Courses" menu.
Can I create my own dorm?
Yes, you can! If you are currently in a dorm, you just have to leave it and you will be granted with the option of creating your own. You can access dorms from the main Hogwarts menu.
What is a Dorm Leader? Can I be the leader?!
The Dorm Leader is a position assigned automatically to the first person in your dorm. If that person leaves the dorm, the position will be given to the next person. Dorm Leaders can assign a name to your dorm under "Dorm Settings" and can boot dorm mates. Leadership cannot be switched, unless the current owner leaves the dorm
