Step 3: Submit your Evaluation to IFSO

Review the tabs to make sure your information and uploaded document was saved.

Before you submit your updated record to IFSO, make sure the processing stage is Clear/Blank (upper left hand corner of record).

  • If your processing stage is not Clear/Blank, that means IFSO may already be working on this or another request for you. Please contact us at before proceeding.
  • If the Processing Stage is Clear/Blank, click on Review and Submit to Department to submit your updates to IFSO. IFSO will not be prompted to process your changes saved in ISD unless you submit by clicking on Submit button.
    • The processing stage will say Pending Department Review; however, the request will go to IFSO

The processing stage in ISD will be changed to a Clear/Blank processing stage to signify IFSO has processed your request. If we have any questions, we will contact you.
