NOTICE: Special Characters not Supported
All applicants MUST follow the guidance on file naming conventions. To avoid submission issues, please follow the guidance provided in the FAQ:
Are there restrictions on file names for any attachment I include with my application package?
File attachment names longer than approximately 50 characters can cause problems processing packages. Please limit file attachment names. Also, do not use any special characters (example: &,–,*,%,/,#’, - ) or spacing followed by a dash in the file and for word separation, use underscore (example: my _Attached_File.pdf) in naming the attachments. Please note that if these guidelines are not followed, your application may be rejected.
We are seeing issues (i.e. "java.lang.Exception: 16 errors") when submissions are not following the filename restrictions.
Below are two examples where the system returned "error 16" when an applicant used an incorrect filename:
