Note: If you have a SPAM blocker or firewall, the e-mail may be sent to your SPAM folder – please check that folder if you do not receive your application acknowledgement. It is your responsibility to see if your computer will block the confirmation e-mail.
"Save and Finish Later": If you are unable to complete your application after you start it, you may save your work and return to the application later through a link that will be sent to the e-mail address you use to set up your account. Applicants must check their e-mail to access the link.
Note: If your e-mail provider does not accept messages from contacts not in your address book, please add email@example.com to your address book or "safe list." If you do not do this, you may not receive the confirmation e-mail.
Quick Tip: If you create an account when you choose to save and finish an application later, be sure to save the Web address (URL) to your browser favorites. Also, it is critical that you remember your user ID and password for future access to your account.
