- have and know how to use an email account
- study a minimum of 5 hours per week or 20 hours per month

STEPS TO ENROLLING AND CHECKING OUT A KIT
⃞ 1) Get an internet e-mail address and password, if you don’t already have one.
⃞ 2) Fill out the online application at MOLearns.com.
⃞ 3) After a few days you will get directions on where to take your placement test and where to send results.
⃞ 4) Once your scores are received, you will get a username and password to log in to MOLearns.com.
⃞ 5) Come to or call the Rolling Hills Library to see if a laptop kit is available to reserve and set up your orientation appointment.

Checkout period is 6 months. You might reserve a kit at the library before you begin these steps, but then you only have 10 days to make your orientation appointment before we will pass it on to the next person waiting.
Library staff can help with some of the steps, and you can apply to MOLearns from one of our library computers. Please ask if you need help and we will try our best to get you started.
