4. Submit a $20 application fee through our online payment site—be sure to include a note that states the donation goes towards your application fee. Refer a friend, and your application fee will be waived!

To get your fee reimbursed:
1. You will still go through our payment site and pay your $20 application fee.
2. On the comment section of the payment site, please write the name of the person you have referred instead of "donations."
3. Once we receive your information, we will reimburse your application fee. However, the person that you have referred MUST have completed their application. If he or she does not complete the application, your application fee will not be reimbursed.
4. The reimbursements will be sent to your address from part 1 of the application as a check from ISC in February of 2016

If you have any questions while completing your application feel free to email jasc@iscdc.org or call 202-289-9088.
