Incoming Student Information
This page serves as a resource for incoming students whose attendance at an "In-Residence" course has already been confirmed by CCMR program coordinator. Below, incoming students will find general information on course logistics including classroom locations, nearby restaurants, and local attractions.
For specific information on individual courses, including scheduling, hotel check-in, and other course-specific details, please contact your program coordinator.
CCMR headquarters is located at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, California. Students can find directions to the NPS campus listed on the sidebar to the right of this page, along with a campus map that delineates the location of CCMR HQ.
If you are arriving by air and require ground transport to NPS, here are a few options:
NPS is an active and secure property of the United States Department of Defense. Therefore, access to campus is restricted.
Your program coordinator will contact you before your course start date to collect some personal information, including your full name and passport number. This information is used to place you on the "Gate Access List," a document that NPS security professionals will use to grant you access to campus.
When you proceed to the "Sloat Avenue Entrance" to NPS, you will be asked to present both your passport and a copy of your Invitational Travel Orders (ITO). Please keep these documents on your person at all times while visting NPS, and they will be needed each time you plan to enter campus.
For more information on gate access, please click here or contact your program coordinator.
