Q/A Deadline notes and NESA office hours


Q: Can I get an extension if I have a problem with the application or for another reason?

NESA must set a submission deadline each year, and that deadline is 11:59:59pm, October 31. At midnight, November 1, the system is locked.

There is no way to update an existing form OR create a new application after that deadline.

NESA does not grant extensions for any reason.

Therefore, we ask that you please begin the application process as soon as possible. NESA office hours are 8:00am to 4:30pm (CST) during weekdays. We are closed on the weekends and holidays. NESA staffers are glad to answer your questions, but it may be physically impossible to answer every question we receive if too many applicants wait until the very last minute to contact us.

Typically, we receive thousands of applications. That is why we stress that every applicant should read through the entire application, contact NESA with any questions, and begin assembling the needed information well before the deadline. Feel free to contact NESA with any questions you may have, and we will do our best to respond in a timely manner.
