Cybersecurity Compliance for 10-month JPME Colleges and CIC Short Courses

NDU provides students with access to the Internet, wireless networks, curricula, and research tools, which are all via DoD-owned, -managed, and -compliant information systems. These IT tools will all be critical to your success at NDU.

Access is predicated on student compliance with DoD Information Assurance (IA) regulations and requirements. No student will receive access to any NDU system until they have accurately and fully completed these IA requirements. In order to satisfy IA regulations, you must submit three documents NO LATER THAN TWO WEEKS PRIOR to your program/course start date:

  • Cyber Awareness Challenge Course Completion Certificate
  • Completed, signed NDU System Authorization Access Request (SAAR) form 2875
  • NDU Acceptable Use Policy
