*Pickup and return dates are when kits are shipping from the AMSTI warehouse or being returned to the AMSTI warehouse. Depending on who is responsible for your kits transportation, someone might be collecting them prior to this date. Please check with your school's administrator about your school and/or district's AMSTI kit policy.
7) To complete the request for this kit, click the blue "Submit" button on the bottom left of the screen.

8) After submitting, you should see a green bar with the message: "Submission completed successfully".

To complete this step for additional kits, click "Certifications" on the top menu bar and repeat steps 4-8 for all kits in your grade level.

If you are piloting the "Requested Delivery Date" feature, please continue:

9) After you have selected to receive a kit, you will need to choose when you will receive it. For this example, I want to receive my Soils & Shores kit during Cycle 1 (the first 9 weeks).

For this example, I am entering August 3, 2022. You may type the text or choose the date from the calendar by clicking the calendar icon.

Note: Once this information is gathered, kits will continue to be shipped on a 4 cycle rotation unless there has been a previous discussion to deliver kits at different times. Choosing August 30th, for example, might still result in the kit being shipped on schedule (August 3-5).
