In order to receive services beyond self-assisted core, a customer must be registered and enrolled in the WIA system.

Enrollment is a fairly easy process and you can review the documentation required below. If you plan on visiting a One Stop Center, please feel free to print out the forms and bring them in with you. It will make your enrollment process easier and faster and enable you to begin accessing services right away. If you do not have some the required documentation readily available, please let the Counselor working with you know and plan to bring it back with you on another visit.
