  Step 2: User ID and Password  
Top Right Corner Image
To log in to your account, you will need to create a user ID and password. For both of these, you should choose something that's easy for you to remember but hard for other people to guess.

  This should be something you can easily remember. You will need this to return if you choose to complete it at a later time, and check the status of the application once you submit it. Choose an alias to protect your identity. Do not choose any information that identifies you personally (e.g., a Social Security number).
: Passwords must be between 8 and 20 characters and contain at least three letters, one number, and no more than three repeating characters.

We're also asking a "secret question" that you can use if you ever need to recover your password. Click on the box to choose a question that only you know the answer to. Then fill in your answer. You may also enter your email address that can be used if you ever need to recover your user id.
