Step 2   |   Create an Account

To start the application process, applicants must create an account in the Online Management system and then log on to that account to start the application. At the time of creating your account, you will need to enter a user name that should be your email address and a password. All pertinent information will be communicated directly to this email address.

For the best user experience when accessing our Online Manager, we suggest using one of the following browsers: Google Chrome 14 or higher, Firefox 9 or higher, or Safari 4 or higher. We recommend that you do not use Internet Explorer as you may encounter some technical issues.

After you log on to your account, you should start your application. It can be saved as a draft, and when you log on again it’s easy to return to that draft, make edits, and when ready, submit the application.

We recommend you read our FAQ page and read or view the tutorial before beginning the application process.
