NDSP Procedures

Initial Registration

Review this Non-DoD Schools Listing to obtain a list of schools utilized by NDSP students in the past.  Gather information about the educational options available and decide which option is best for your child.  NDSP does not endorse or certify schools.

Recommendation:  It is recommended that you review the Choosing an International School Checklist, if applicable, to assist you in the decision-making process.

Steps in the Process

We have a Step-by-Step Registration Checklist to assist you through the registration process.

For first-time family registration, adding a new dependent, or moving to another NDSP duty location, register with the NDSP by using the  NDSP Student Online Registration (SOR) system.
