General Requirements

This application works best with the following browsers:

   Internet Explorer (IE) - 8.0 or higher 
Firefox/Mozilla - most recent version

Parts of this application may not function properly on other browsers. In addition to a compatible browser, you will need the free version of
Adobe Acrobat Reader to download and print other required forms.

Windows 98 or Windows ME and Internet Explorer (IE) 6.0

We have discovered a few cases where the Windows 98 or Windows ME operating system, combined with IE 6.0, has created obstacles for logging into homepages. If you are using one of these operating systems and can't log into your homepage, we suggest you try to log in from another computer or upgrade your operating system.
