Welcome to the Non-DoD Schools Program (NDSP). Receiving orders for an overseas assignment can be the beginning of an exciting adventure for a military or Department of Defense (DoD) civilian family. There are many important decisions that coincide with a transition to a location that is remote or in an area without the support normally associated with an overseas assignment on an installation. Choosing the educational option that will be most effective for your child will be one of the most critical decisions you will make.
In addition to eligible dependents located at the overseas duty station, the NDSP has been given a special authorization to allow payments for those eligible dependents who are on authorized departure from the overseas location when the following provisions are met:
The DoD sponsor has the choice to enroll their dependent in a publically funded school in the safe haven location. However, if the dependent is re-enrolled in the overseas school, then the sponsor will be required to sign a repayment agreement prior to the NDSP payment.
Sponsors may upload their signed agreement with tuition invoice to their sponsor portal or email to the NDSP Administration box at NDSP.Administration@dodea.edu . They may also email NDSP Management at firstname.lastname@example.org.
