  3. Fill out application completely and legibly, preferably typed. Include details about the applicant’s background and present situation. Incomplete or illegible applications cannot be processed.
  4. Submit signed application by email or U.S. Mail, not fax.
  5. Screeners will send you additional questions or requests for further documentation.
