Uniforms & Dress at NDU

At NDU, you will need your Class A and Class B uniforms. Below are pictures of each type of uniform. 

In general, students at the National War College (NWC) wear their Class B uniforms on a daily basis.  However, students at the Eisenhower School (ES) and College of International Security Affairs (CISA) dress in civilian business professional attire. This means at least a jacket and tie. Uniforms vary yet again on the Joint Forces Staff College (JFSC), where the usual dress is Battle Dress Uniform or BDU's. Wearing jeans or sneakers while in class at NDU is never acceptable. In the spring time on certain days, the students also are permitted to wear khakis and polo shirts.  All students will need a Class A uniform for receptions, distinguished speakers, and other official functions.
