Application Information & Eligibility Criteria
We strongly recommend that you do not wait until the last day to submit your application. Late applications will not be accepted. The Department is required to enforce the established deadline to ensure fairness to all applicants. The time it takes to upload the supporting documents for your application will vary depending on a number of factors including the size of the files and speed of your internet connection.
