Online Application Submission Instructions

Online application materials are available on the IBHE website at Note: Original signatures must be obtained on the cover page, (Attachment 1) and must be mailed to the IBHE. The completed form may be downloaded and signed after online submission is completed. Please refer to general information cover page on the RFP for details.

Please review these instructions before initiating the online application process. Since this application consists of several attachments in Microsoft Word, the system has been designed so that each attachment is submitted as an individual document.

There are two processes for entering an online application: (1) register and receive an application number assigned by the system and, (2) enter and submit the actual information that makes up the various attachments to the application. You will not need to enter all application information at one time. You may log in and log out of the system as time permits. To enter an online work study application, please follow these steps:

Registration Process

Step 1 Applicants must register with the system by entering contact information (name, address, etc.).

Step 2 After the contact information is entered, you will receive an e-mail with your login ID, password, and application number. Be sure to print and save your login ID, password, and application number. After registering, download each blank attachment from the online system onto your computer and complete it.

Application Process

Step 1 Log in to the system with assigned login ID, password, and application number. Enter: (1) a project synopsis, (2) contact information for the project director, and (3) budget information. This information can be copied and pasted from other electronic documents.

Step 2 Complete all the attachments. After completion, the attachments may be uploaded to the online system.

In the status column of the attachment checklist screen, an “X” indicates that the attachment has not yet been uploaded. A check mark indicates that the particular attachment has been uploaded.

After each attachment has been uploaded, the system will proceed to step 3.

Step 3 In this final step the information is verified for accuracy and you are allowed to submit the application to the IBHE (you must click on the “Submit” button). After the application is submitted, you will receive an e-mail confirming that your application has been successfully submitted. You can now print cover pages to sign.

If you experience problems or have questions about the use of this system, please contact Rich Jachino, Associate Director, at 217-557-7339 or send an e-mail note to:
