For First-Time Applicants

Applications that are fully submitted online and in queue by the 21st of the month will be reviewed by the end of the month.  Applications received in the queue after the 21st may not be included in the current review cycle.  The certification process typically takes between 45 and 60 days (and, in some cases, up to 90 days) depending on when the application is submitted, the completeness of the supporting documents, and the responsiveness of the applicant.
