While stationed in Stavanger, command-sponsored dependents may choose from many schools, select the school option best suited to them and receive funding through the Non-DoD Schools Program (NDSP).

Non DoD Schools Program (NDSP)


NDSP supports and funds (yearly tuition) education of authorized command-sponsored dependents of military members and Department of Defense (DoD) civilian employees assigned to overseas areas where no DoDEA school is available within the commuting area. The DoDDS-Europe, NDSP has the responsibility to oversee the payment of an education allowance when space-required, tuition-free students must attend local schools where no Department of Defense Dependent School is available. This program is available to authorized command-sponsored dependents of military members and Department of Defense civilian employees assigned to overseas areas in Stavanger, Norway.


The School Liaison Program Manager (SLPM) is the primary point of contact between the military installation, families, the NDSP program, private schools, home school families, and the community at large. The SLPM connects these different partners to help improve education for our military families in the Stavanger, Norway area.


Parents must register each school-aged child into NDSP before arriving in Stavanger in order to receive full paid tuition funding. Please register by clicking on the link to the right (NDSP- registration). For first-time family enrollments or if adding a new dependent, it is required you register using the NDSP Student Online Registration system.
