Threshold for Admission

Each curriculum at the Naval Postgraduate School has a specified Academic Profile Code (APC) threshold for admission. See the Curriculum Listing in this catalog for specific APC requirements for each curriculum. Officers with deficient APCs may still qualify for entry into these curricula by completing suitable courses from any regionally accredited institution. In certain instances, NPS offers a technical refresher quarter for applicants whose APC does not qualify them for direct entry into a technical curriculum. Transcripts (not grade reports) of work done at civilian schools must be forwarded to the Director of Admissions, Naval Postgraduate School, 1 University Circle, He-022, Monterey, CA 93943, to affect an APC change. The grades in all courses completed will be used to revise an officer's APC.
