All HPSP, FAP, NADDS, and NCP scholarship participants are required to have Armed Forces Common Access Card (CAC) in their possession.
As a member of the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) you are permitted unlimited use of all military (Army, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard) commissaries, exchanges, and recreational facilities Your ID card is your key to using these facilities. There are many exchanges and commissaries scattered around the country which provide significant savings. From the below links, you can find those closest to you.
1. To obtain an ID Card, you will need a copy of your Oath of Office (or Form 4 if you are an NCP participant) and 2 picture IDs (i.e. driver’s license, passport, etc.). If you do not have a copy of your Oath of Office (or Form 4), please contact the Accessions Department to have one sent to you. To obtain an ID card for your spouse and dependents, you will need a copy of your marriage and birth certificates, as well as 2 photo IDs. Children under the age of 10 do not require an ID.
3. When reporting to the ID card issuing facility to have your ID card made, please inform the clerk that you are a “Navy HPSP/NCP/FAP student in the IRR and authorized to carry a CAC.” Despite what the clerk may say about needing a military e-mail address, you do not have to have one in order to get a CAC. Your CAC can be made without a military e-mail. Provide your school e-mail (it should end with a .edu). A yahoo, gmail, or other free public e-mail address is insufficient for a CAC.
4. If reporting for an ID card while on annual training orders, there is a specific type of orders verification you must have performed by the clerk in order to get your CAC. You must present your annual training orders AND make the statement that you are an “HPSP student reporting for Active Duty for Training (ADT).” If there is a problem changing your status in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS), the clerk should contact the Navy’s DEERS Project Office directly at (901)874-2366.
