The DCJIS will be extending all current iCORI registrations for one additional year, eliminating the need for any account to be renewed in 2014. This extension will move all renewal dates to 2015.  The DCJIS is currently working to update all expiration dates within the iCORI system. This change should be reflected in all accounts over the upcoming months.
