How to Complete and Submit an Application using Adobe Reader

The application form is an Adobe PDF file. Although the blank form can be viewed in many web browsers and utility programs, successfully completing and submitting the application requires the use of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. Please do not use any other method.

  1. When the form is complete, click the “Submit Form” button at the top right of the form. This will validate that all required fields have been entered. Adobe Reader will send the form as an email attachment, using either a desktop email application like Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail, or web-based email like Gmail or Yahoo.

    NOTE: If you do not want Adobe Reader to send email on your behalf, save the completed form using “File… Save As” and send the saved file as an attachment to [email protected] Although you may print the form to a PDF file for your personal records, the result of a Print cannot be processed by Adobe when we receive it. The results of a saved, filled-in form may not display correctly in any application besides Adobe Reader.
