All students are required to have a DoD Common Access Card, or CAC. This will enable entry onto Fort McNair and the processing of travel vouchers within DTS. The information below is for non-DoD federal agency Civilian students who do not currently have a DoD CAC.
Prior to requesting a CAC, the security office of the non-DoD Civilian student's federal agency must have already passed the student's security clearance to the NDU Security Office.
Once your agency has passed your clearance to the NDU Security Office, you must complete a Non-DoD Federal Agency Civilian CAC Application Form, and email it to Ms. Cynthia King..
IMPORTANT! Do not complete the date of birth or SSN fields on the form, as this personally identifiable information, or PII.
Once you have emailed the form, call Ms. King at 202-685-4278, and provide your date of birth and SSN over the phone. Once you have contacted Ms. King, she will provide further guidance on the approval of your application.
Once your application is approved, you will contact the security office to schedule an appointment to have your CAC created. POCs at teh security office are: Montez Winters, Phone 202-685-2134, Email firstname.lastname@example.org; and Carl Wright, Phone 202-685-3780, Email email@example.com.
