Students purchase Sapling individually from Sapling. Go to the website and arrange for purchase.
  1. SIgn up with your MSU official enrolled name. Do not use aliases or married names if different from that on the registrars listing for you.
    1. Go to http://saplinglearning.com and click on your country at the top right.      
    2a. If you already have a Sapling Learning account, log in and skip to step 3.      
    2b. If you have a Facebook account, you can use it to quickly create a Sapling Learning account. Click “Create an Account”, then “Create my account through Facebook”. You will be prompted to log into Facebook if you aren't already. Choose a username and password, then click “Link Account”. You can then skip to step 3.   
    2c. Otherwise, click "Create an Account". Supply the requested information and click "Create My Account". Check your email (and spam filter) for a message from Sapling Learning and click on the link provided in that email.      
    3. Find your course in the list (you may need to expand the subject and term categories) and click the link.      
    4. Select a payment option and follow the remaining instructions.  

    Once you have registered and enrolled, you can log in at any time to complete or review your homework assignments. During sign up or throughout the term, if you have any technical problems or grading issues, send an email to support@saplinglearning.com explaining the issue. The Sapling Learning support team is better able to resolve issues than your instructor.
