Step 3: Wait for Approval

One of our co-op’s volunteers will review and approve your membership application. Most requests are approved within a day but other demands on our volunteers’ time may occasionally result in longer delays.

Membership Application Troubleshooting

If you have completed all the steps above, but your membership has not yet been approved:

  1. Do you have at least one child who will be between the ages of 10 and 19 years on the first day of class?

    Planet Homeschool only offers middle school and high school classes for students 10 to 19 years of age.

  2. Double-check to make sure you saved your Family Profile. You should have received an email with the subject line “Membership Signup Request” from [email protected]

  3. Double-check to make sure you paid your membership fee. You should have received an email with the subject line “Receipt for Your Payment to Minnesota Secular Homeschool EnrichmentPlanet Homeschool” from [email protected]

  4. Has it been at least 3 days since you completed both of the steps above?

    Most of the time, your application will be reviewed and approved within a day, but sometimes our co-op’s volunteers need to prioritize other parts of their lives, so please allow them at least 3 days to review your application.

  5. Search for an email from [email protected]

  6. Search for an email from [email protected]

  7. If you successfully saved a new Family Profile, paid your membership fee, and allowed enough time for a volunteer to approve your application, please contact our co-op’s Lead Volunteers at [email protected].

    It is helpful but not necessary to include a list of which steps you’ve completed and when (if known).
