LRA and RA applications may be available to complete earlier than their "available" date. During the consideration periods for each application the system will be placed in read-only mode. All applicants will be able to log in to view their applications however no edits will be allowed. References, feedback, and other pending requests sent by the system as part of the application can still be completed but late submissions may affect consideration. During periods outside the official application process dates, the application may be disabled.
