Tips for Viewing and Using Fillable PDF Forms

Please review the following instructions for successfully completing a fillable PDF form.

✔ Use the latest version of Adobe Reader.

To open and complete the PDF application forms, you will need Adobe Reader. If you do not have it installed on your computer, you may download the latest version free of charge from

Save the form to your computer before completing it.

Do not complete the form online within your web browser; your data will NOT be saved. Please save it to your computer first and then fill it out. 
To save:

1. Position your cursor on the form link and click with your right mouse button (do not activate the link and open the form).

2. From the menu that pops up, select the Save As option.

3. You should then be prompted to choose a location to save the file.

4. Select the location on your own computer or network and click on the Save button.

5. Once saved, navigate to the file and type directly into the form fields and save your work as you go. You can save your data and re-open the file later to modify or enter additional information. 

Print only when your cursor is not in a form field.

Use your mouse to select an area of the form that is not inside a form field or hit the tab key after completing the entry of your last box before printing your form. If a form field is active (e.g., contains the blinking bar) the contents of that block will not print.

Print from Acrobat, not the browser.

If the fillable form is displayed within your web browser’s window be sure to use the printer button on the Acrobat toolbar menu to print the form instead of your web browser’s print function.
