Students interested in Bill Arney's sponsorship should create a draft of a contract using the online contract process and, in that process, select Bill Arney as the sponsor. You should make this selection without soliciting a prior verbal commitment from Bill; he will examine all contracts submitted to him via the online application. Once you go through the Steps to Complete a Contract, you should choose the step to submit the contract "for approval." Then, even though Bill will get an automatic notification that you have submitted a contract, it would be prudent to send an email directly to Bill Arney ( notifying him that a draft contract is ready for his review. He will then review and respond to the contract. If Bill does not respond within one week, please send another email reminding him that you have a contract awaiting review.
