The Naval War College International Military Student Office (IMSO) have over twenty years experience seeing to the administrative and professional needs of our diverse student body.
The IMSO is your gateway to the NWC experience. They will ensure that you are checked into the program, thoroughly briefed on local services, housing and all of the many concerns you will have about getting you and your family settled for your time in Newport. Please see the Student Guide (PDF)
for detailed information about your time at the War College.
For Security Cooperation Officers around the World
The IMSO here is your point of contact to assist you with questions and concerns from the time the invitation message is released until the student is back home.
For Sponsors and Prospective Sponsors
The IMSO manages our sponsor program. An important and integral part of the War College experience, our sponsors play an invaluable role for our arriving students, assisting with getting settled, adjusting to a new and foreign country and helping with the myriad details for setting up a household. They also provide a level of exposure to American life and culture that complements the official academic and social program for the course.
If you are interested in becoming an international sponsor, please contact the IMSO office. We will be happy to provide details about the program and our current needs.
