Welcome Class of 2019! The content below is provided to assist you in making the transition to the Eisenhower School from your previous duty station, institution, or occupation. There are essentially three categories of processing that you will need to complete. The first is the National Defense University (NDU) processing that every student on campus must complete, regardless of the college. This includes the necessary requirements for email accounts and internet usage, security, and government credit card applications. The second category is the Eisenhower School processing that includes official passport applications, medical records,  personal information questionnaires, and various items to facilitate successful participation throughout the academic year. The last category is the processing specific to your originating agency. Uniformed service members will have to comply with the requirements of their respective branches, as will civilians with their respective agencies. A checklist is provided below to guide you through the administrative process.

While some items may seem redundant, keep in mind that the Eisenhower School is unique among the colleges of NDU with its significant amount of travel in the curriculum. Much of the information requested is solely to facilitate this mission. Timely and accurate completion before the academic load picks up is essential.

Thank you and welcome aboard!

Please check back on this website periodically. Announcements and pertinent information will be released as they become available.
