Welcome Aboard!

 

Congratulations on your new assignment to the Naval Postgraduate School!

 

The following information is provided to assist you in making your transition.

 

Directions to NPS:

http://www.nps.edu/About/MapsDirections.html

 

Check in information:

  • You are directed to first check-in in the Service Alpha uniform with the Marine Detachment (MarDet) which is located at the Defense Language Institute (DLI) located at the Presidio of Monterey (POM).  This is an installation that is separate from the Naval Postgraduate School, however they handle our administrative duties. You should also know that parking spaces near the Det are rarely available.  It is advisable to bring green PT gear in the event Training requests weigh-ins.  Motorcycle riders should also bring their information and documentation to be entered into the unit’s motorcycle rider database. 

 

  • Reporting before the “No Earlier than Date” requires Prior Approval from Director of Student Services.

 

  • Once complete with the MarDet at DLI, proceed to the Student Services Office (SSO) between 0800 and 1500.  The SSO is located in the basement of Hermann Hall at 1 University Way on NPS (see map below, identified by ‘He’).  Hermann Hall is the main building on NPS, located at the flagpole. 
    • Proceed through the NPS main gate (at Sloat and 9th), keep right after the gate and then turn left on University Way.  Hermann Hall will be directly in front of you. 

At the SSO, expect to fill out paperwork, establish an nps.edu e-mail and access account, and take a picture.  Do not schedule household goods deliveries or any other appointment this day.

 

  • Upon completion with the SSO, proceed to the Senior Marine Representative’s Office.  This office is located on the first floor of Hermann Hall in room 116.  Here, expect to be greeted by the Deputy Senior Marine Representative (LtCol Raffetto) or the Senior Marine Representative (Col McCarthy). 

 

  • Attend new student orientation at TIME on TBD in King Hall (see map below) in Service Bravos.
    • The Marine Student Body has an Activities Fund that is managed entirely by the Marine Students.  There is a completely optional one-time contribution of $30 that will be solicited upon check-in.  If you wish to contribute to the fund, please bring cash to orientation to facilitate the collection. 

E-Mail Pre-registration

 

***Note: You must be within 90 days of your arrival date to set up an account.***

 

  • Once within 30-90 days of your NPS report date, go to https://www.nps.edu/newstudents and follow the directions listed under web in processing (resident students). Complete all pre-registration prior to your arrival.

 

  • Your user-id is: first initial, middle initial, first 6 letters of last name
    • Ex: J. J. Devildog = jjdevild

 

NOTE: If you are accessing the website using Windows 2000 and XP, you must enter your login as follows:  ern\userid.  If you are asked to enter a domain name enter: ern.

 

Password Instructions

 

NN<ccc>--<ssss><fl>abc123

 

Where <ccc> represents the student's 3-digit curric number, <ssss> represents the student's last four digits of the SSN, and <fl> represents the student's first initial and last initial as lowercase characters.

 

After your initials add: abc123

 

For example, student Jane Smith in curric 368 with last four of her SSN as 9876 would have the following password:

 

NN368--9876jsabc123

 

Passwords are case sensitive so the "NN" must be uppercase and the first and last initial must be entered as lowercase for the password to work.

You are encouraged to visit NPS while on house hunting/TAD orders. Military Housing on the Monterey Peninsula has been privatized under the Army's Residential Communities Initiative (RCI) since 2003.  The Housing is managed by "The Parks at Monterey Bay" with locations at La Mesa Village, Ord Military Community, and Presidio of Monterey. The cost of housing in the local community is very high. 

 

  • You are required to check in with the Military Housing Services Office either by email, phone, or in person to receive an in-depth housing briefing.

There is no waiting list for housing at The Parks at Monterey Bay and the vast majority of the homes are new or renovated; assignment on a first-come, first-serve basis.  The Parks at Monterey Bay will accept applications, proof of dependents, and orders in advance and will send you information about homes you qualify for in your rank band even before arriving to Monterey.

Storage

 

Service members that are students assigned to NPS have an entitlement to non-temporary storage at origin (i.e. last duty station) as part of their PCS move.  Students are encouraged to use this entitlement.  However, household goods brought to Monterey to be subsequently put into storage at government expense must be approved by the NPS Supply Officer or they can be stored at owners' expense.   According to the JFTR entitlement to store at destination is only applicable for students residing in Military Housing.

 

NPS Students requesting Non-Temp Storage must contact Personal Property Office at

PersProp@nps.edu or call (831) 656-2151

 

Local school information
