I was filling out my application and had to log out before submitting it. Unfortunately, I didn't record my user ID and password. How can I recover this information?
When you logged in for the first time, an email was automatically sent to you indicating your user ID. Check your emails to recover this information. Using your user ID, go back to the home page of the on-line application and follow instructions to recover your password or to change it.
I've already submitted my request and I realize I need to modify it. Can I make modifications to my request once I've submitted it to OUAC?
