  • Renewal applications for students currently enrolled in the IEA Program must be received by the department by 3 p.m. CT on June 1. The department will not review applications that are received by the department after the deadline has passed.
  • Applications for private schools to participate in the IEA Program for the 2018–19 school year (Aug. 1, 2018–July 31, 2019) will now be accepted year-round. Current participating schools must annually apply to participate in the IEA Program. Schools are encouraged to submit the applications early in order to ensure the school name is added to the list of approved schools before the start of the 2018–19 school year.
