    2. New users must first create an account here: Register (nps.gov)
    3. Account Registration and login requires email verification using a code.  The code is only active for 15 minutes.  Check your junk/spam folder if you do not receive a verification code email within a few minutes. A new code must be resent if it expires.
    4. While preparing an application, the system will “time-out” after 30 minutes. Please save applications frequently to avoid loss of information.
