Registration process

  1. New members must first join our co-op before they can register for classes.
     
    • Once registration for new members is open, becoming a member of Planet Homeschool requires three steps:
       
      1. There will be a "Join/Request Membership" button in the upper right-hand corner of the page when registration is open.
         
        • Click that button and then complete and submit the registration form.
           
        • Make sure you save the user name and password you just entered because you will need them to log in later.
      2. You will next see an automated message prompting you to read and digitally sign our co-op’s:
         
      3. You will also need to fill out a Volunteer Availability Form for the next semester before approval.
         
  2. In addition to submitting the required forms, you will also need to pay your Membership Fee.
     
    • The annual Membership Fee is $70 per family.
       
      • Members joining for the Spring semester pay a prorated $35.
    • You may pay with check or PayPal. PayPal is preferred.
       
      • To pay via PayPal, please use the Pay with PayPal button in the message prompting you to send in your membership forms and pay your fee.
         
        • You can also log in on the Planet Homeschool website using the user name and password you created. You will be directed to your account and prompted to pay your membership fee when you log in.
      • If you prefer to pay your membership fee by check, please make the check payable to "Planet Homeschool" and mail it to our Finance Director:
         Tiffany Skidmore
         1780 Snelling Ave N
         Falcon Heights MN 55113-5734
    • This Membership Fee pays for classroom space rental, web hosting fees, insurance, and other overhead costs.
  3. Your membership will be approved according to the following timetable:
     
    • Memberships for new families will be approved on the morning that registration opens. See our calendar for this year’s dates.
       
    • Membership applications submitted and completed after registrations opens will be approved within a day or two.
  4. You will receive an email from "Lifeline@homeschool-life.com" when your account has been activated.
     
    • If you have paid and your account has not been activated within a reasonable amount of time:
       
      • Check to make sure you completed all the steps above.
         
      • If you have, please contact us at PlanetHomeschoolMN@gmail.com so one of our volunteers can help you register.
  5. Once your account is activated, you are a member of Planet Homeschool and will be able to register for classes.

Please note that registration is easier on a desktop or laptop rather than a mobile device.
