This page may contain links to non-U.S. government websites. What this means to you »

Due to increased security precautions, students should bring two photo ID's to campus. Please have them with you, not in your baggage. If you do not have the photo ID's, you will not be permitted on campus. Security checks will delay your registration at the NETC.

If you are a student from a foreign country, please be prepared to show your passport or visa at registration.

Students on the access list and traveling by shuttle bus will be directed to Building C for registration. Students arriving in other vehicles must be on the access list to be granted access and are subject to a vehicle search. At registration, all students will receive a temporary photo identification badge and a temporary parking permit to individuals driving a motor vehicle. Note: Students who are FEMA employees will be granted access using their FEMA identification.

Firearms are prohibited on campus. Due to heightened security requirements, please understand that security and law enforcement personnel may search you, your vehicle or your luggage. Maryland law is very narrow in its definition of Law Enforcement Officers who may carry firearms. For your own protection, and to expedite your processing into the NETC, do not bring weapons of any kind to campus. Weapons include knives with blades longer than 3 inches, machete, bow and arrows, ammunition, rifles, shotguns, pistols, etc. Sworn/Commissioned and state POST certified officers and federal officers or local officers with concurrent jurisdiction who require a firearm for the performance of required official duties must obtain an exception from the Director of Support Services prior to arrival on campus. If you do arrive at NETC with weapons of any kind without prior approval, your entry to campus will be significantly delayed.

Consumption of alcoholic beverages is limited to the Pub and Log Cabin. Alcohol is not allowed in lodging rooms or vehicles and will be confiscated. If you arrive at NETC with alcohol, or attempt to bring it on campus, your entry to campus will be significantly delayed.
