Helpful Tips

The online application does not have to be completed all at once.

After you’ve created your account, bookmark the login screen. As you fill out the application, you’ll see that you can periodically save your work. If you need to pause and return at a later time, simply log in again and pick up where you left off.

The application fee can be paid online as well. At the end of the application, you will be directed to a secure, encrypted page where you can make a credit card payment.
