Welcome to National War College. We are excited to have you here.
As of this website posting, the pervasiveness of the COVID pandemic has been reduced to a manageable state in the local areas surrounding the National Capitol Region (northern Virginia, Washington D.C., and Maryland). Currently, all surrounding regions are in Phase 2, a state permitting general re-opening of local business and services with required precautionary measures (e.g., face masks, social distancing). Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall (JBMHH) and is presently observing Health Protection Condition (HPCON) BRAVO, which is comparable to the local area Phase 2 conditions and restrictions. Considering current local conditions, NDU will open its campus to a limited physical presence of faculty, staff, and students for the 2020-2021 Academic Year. The opening of the NDU campus will be limited in accordance with acceptable risk to NDU personnel. The health and safety of our personnel will be the primary concern in balancing the need for face-to-face instruction and on-campus presence against virtualization.
Consistent with that principle, most of your in-processing and orientation will be completed virtually to the maximum extent practical. To do this effectively, you will need access to a desktop/laptop computer to send and receive documents. Additionally, you should have adequate internet access to view full audio/video live broadcasts and, if desired, send questions to presenters via chat. Links to various sessions will be posted on this website and will be provided through as many paths as possible to ensure you have them.
Visit the NDU Incoming Students website (http://www.ndu.edu/Students/Incoming-Students/) for detailed information regarding University-level in-processing requirements.
Formal class orientation and in-processing will occur beginning August 3 per the University and NWC Orientation schedules posted at https://www.ndu.edu/Incoming-Students/AY-20-21-Incoming-Student-Orientation/
