Application Process

Submit an online application  for review and approval. Once we have reviewed your application and approved it, we will generate and email you an invoice summarizing your payment schedule and payment instructions. Your verification of vaccination and booster is due at this time. We will then place a hold on a room for 5 days. Receipt of your payment reserves your room. If payment is not received within 5 days of the date your invoice was emailed to you, the hold will be removed and we will move on to the next applicant on the waitlist.
