The Naval Postgraduate School offers a wide variety of first-class graduate degree programs to eligible U.S. military students, international students, Department of Defense (DoD) civilian employees and a limited number of defense contractors.

All applications are processed by the Office of Admissions, but the final acceptance decision is determined by the appropriate department faculty. Be sure to review our Prospective Students page for eligibility and general information before applying. Some departments have additional application requirements, which are outlined in the Academic Catalog.

Academic Profile Codes (APCs) for all U.S. Navy officers are calculated and reported by the NPS Office of Admissions. In order to have your APC calculated, you must complete an online application and submit official transcripts from all attended schools. Further details can be found under the U.S. Navy officers section. Once reported, this score will be found in block 47 of your ODC.

Please visit our FAQs page and if you have any additional questions, you can email us at admissions@nps.edu.
