ADLS Account/Network Access In order to establish your AWC e-mail and network account prior to your arrival, you must create an ADLS account and complete the CyberAwareness Training course. DoD CyberAwareness courses in JKO and other systems do not interface with AF network/ADLS. To create an ADLS account, go to: https://golearn.adls.af.mil/kc/login/register.asp or https:// golearn.adls.af.mil/login.aspx. Once registered/account created, take CyberAwareness Course by selecting "Course List" on left; "Total Force Awareness Training", then "Cyber Awareness Challenge". By completing training in ADLS, the AF-wide network will record your training and AWC can create your Maxwell AFB computer account. Recommend training be done No Earlier Than 20 May to prevent having to do it while at AWC.
SECURITY CLEARANCE All DoD Civilian students are required to have a Secret clearance to attend AWC. Additionally, all inbound DoD Civilian students are encouraged to initiate a Top Clearance investigation with their current Security Manager upon notification of selection to AWC, to potentially participate in TS-level electives and/or briefings. If you are currently filling an SCI-level billet, ask your SSO for a Transfer-In-Status (TIS) to the AU/SSO at Maxwell AFB, Alabama (DSN 493-6715/3606). Finally, if your TS clearance is within 60 days of the 6-year expiration date, you must begin the update process through your current security manager. Please contact the AWC security manager (DSN 493-1399/commercial (334) 953-1399) with any questions
TRAVEL ORDERS Civilian students attend AWC in a TDY status; ensure your travel orders reflect two fund cites: one for current FY and one for the next FY. Also, work with your home station Commercial Travel Office (CTO) and Orders Approving Authority (AO) to help you find lodging w/in the authorized reduced per diem rate or adjust TDY orders to authorize actual lodging cost not to exceed the locality per diem rate.
PAY and LEAVE RECORDS. Because civilian students attend AWC in a TDY status, their pay and leave records are maintained by their home station. Recommend you take sufficient leave prior to arrival at AWC to avoid a “use or lose” situation during the academic year. AWC will NOT authorize ordinary leave during the academic year, except for during a two-week holiday break in December.
COMMON ACCESS CARD (CAC) All students must have a valid DoD CAC prior to arrival at AWC. If you do not have one, you must obtain one at the nearest RAPIDS Issuance Facility with two valid forms of identification (RAPIDS Locator Website: http://www.dmdc.osd.mil/rsl/).
TRANSCRIPT All civilian students must request their official undergraduate transcript be mailed or e-mailed to the Air University Registrar’s Office NLT 1 Jun. Transcripts should be mailed to Air University Registrar; ATTN: Admissions; 60 Schumacher Ave; Maxwell AFB, AL 36112-6337. The school can also send the transcripts electronically to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Only one transcript is required from either the student’s bachelor or master degree, not both.
DEERS All DoD civilians must update their information in DEERS by the first day of class. Each student can verify his/her information in DEERS by going to https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect.
