Personal electronic devices (PEDs) (e.g., phones, laptops, digital media players, GPS watches, Fitbit, electronic cigarettes, wireless modems, Bluetooth devices) are not permitted in spaces that store, handle and process classified information; limited storage exists for PEDs. Personnel must conduct a self-check prior to entering spaces that store, handle and process classified information to avoid a command security violation. Seized PEDs will be forensically searched by the security manager to ensure the absence of classified material prior to being returned to the service member. Violations may result in confiscation of the device and disciplinary action under the UCMJ, including legal action against the offending employee, contractor or visitor. To further protect classified material and reduce the risk of unauthorized disclosure, personnel are not permitted to bring large bags (e.g., book bags, gym bags, oversized purses) into spaces that store, handle and process classified information.


All students will report with a copy of their orders (include any and all order modifications), Page 2, and, if possible, medical and dental records. Any administrative need (such as travel claims or annual leave) may require additional documentation; students should bring all supporting documents. Reservists need to verify their Page 2 in NSIPS before reporting and have a copy of most recent LES. For any questions, please contact the IWTC Student Management office at 757-492-0061.
