It is important that you read this page thoroughly and comply with all instructions; no deviations or substitutions are permitted.
Access to NDU information systems is predicated on user compliance with DoD/NDU cybersecurity regulations. No student will receive access to any NDU system until the student has accurately, fully and verifiably completed all mandatory DoD/NDU IA requirements.
ALL JFSC JPME and PE students (Non-Masters) are required to:
- Submit (via email) an NDU System Authorization Access Request Form 2875 ("2875") completed and signed by the student AND by the student's home unit/agency Security Office, dated no later than ONE WEEK prior to your course start date;
- Register in Joint Knowledge Online (JKO) and affiliate their JKO profile with their NDU college as their Secondary Organization. Students must remain associated with their NDU college for the entire duration of their enrollment;
- Complete the most recent version of the DoD Cyber Awareness Challenge course (currently DOD-US1364-19) in JKO no later ONE WEEK prior to your course start date. *NOTE: The DoD Cyber Awareness Challenge certificate ("Cyber Cert") must be renewed every 365 days and cannot lapse during your enrollment; an expired Cyber Cert status in JKO results in an immediate loss of access to NDU information systems.
