Non DoD Schools Program (NDSP)


Know Before You Go logo

Welcome to the Non-DoD Schools Program (NDSP). We provide support and funding for the education of authorized command-sponsored dependents of military members and Department of Defense (DoD) civilian employees assigned to overseas areas where no DoDEA school is available within the commuting area. At these locations, DoDEA supports a variety of options for your children ranging from home school programs to public or private schools. Approval for the enrollment of an eligible minor dependent of a DoD sponsor must be obtained from DoDEA NDSP office prior to enrolling a child in a non-DoD school.

General information is provided here and we encourage you to contact the NDSP Liaison/Point of Contact (POC) responsible for your area of assignment as soon as possible for specific school information.

To enroll in the Non-DoD Schools Program (NDSP), please register by clicking on the link below. For first time family enrollments, it is required you register using the NDSP Student Online Registration system. If you are already registered with NDSP and need to add another dependent, submit the DoDEA Form 610 and NDSP 620 Pre Screening Questionnaire through your NDSP Liaison/POC. If you do not have a NDSP Liaison/POC, submit the documents directly to the appropriate enrollment email address for your area listed below.
