Please do not take forms to the schools for registration. The registration process must be done online. No in-person visit is needed. See instructions to help with uploading documents. Please be sure to upload the required documents before scheduling a registration review.

You will upload all of the required documents through your computer or using mobile capture, which lets you take a picture of your documentation and upload it through the registration website. (Mobile Capture means saying YES to receiving a text message.) Upload all required documents before scheduling a review. There are no in-person appointments at this time. If more information is needed to complete your registration, our staff will contact you.

As you begin the online process, write down your username and password. You may stop and start this process until complete.

Due to the volume of registrations, it may take our staff a number of days to confirm your enrollment. We appreciate your patience.
