Military Personnel In-Processing

CNIC HQ Building

In-processing requirements apply to all CNIC Headquarters (HQ) personnel working in the Washington, D.C. area or at remote HQ sites. For military, this includes Reserve personnel and Individual Augmentees. Check-in activities at CNIC HQ are organized into three phases and include pre-arrival and on-site requirements.

Links to required training, forms, and other check-in documents appear at appropriate points throughout these guidelines. Forms and documents are also available in the Forms-Documents Library

Many forms require personally identifiable information (PII) and therefore cannot be e-mailed or faxed to in-processing points of contact. Instead, print out and complete the forms prior to arrival, and bring them with you when you check in on site.

If you need assistance during check-in, contact your NCode Sponsor or Executive Assistant. You may also call the HQ Check-In/Out Coordinator at (202) 433-6888.

Regular military personnel, Individual Augmentees, and Reserve military on orders exceeding 60 days should begin check-in by clicking on Phase 1 Check-In Requirements, below or at left. Reservists on orders of 60 days or less should follow the guidelines for an abbreviated check-in set out below. 

Check-In for Military Reserve Personnel on Orders of 60 Days or Less

Print out the Military Reservist (60 Days or Less) Check-In form to use as a checklist as you proceed. Return the completed checklist to the HQ Check-In/Out Coordinator.
