Registration occurs in two places – at the Security Office for your identification card, vehicle registration and weapon storage, and Registration Office in the dormitory for housing assignments. You are required to wear your identification card at all times. Besides being a means of identifying individuals, it also serves as your meal pass in the dining hall. It must be presented and scanned in order for you to be served without being charged for food. If you arrive in a government or privately owned vehicle, after registering your vehicle as indicated above and getting your identification badge, Security personnel will direct you to the Registration Office. Registration staff are available 24 hours per day. When you register, you will also receive a class packet that contains information regarding the FLETC and class specifics: for example, class building number, location of classroom, starting time, and other pertinent information. DO NOT bring personal weapons, they are not allowed on the FLETC. You must turn in your duty weapon at Security when you arrive. You can check your weapon out on weekends. Please refer to the section in the student handbook on the proper procedure to do so.

Upon completion of training, room keys should be returned to the Registration area. Envelopes are available for this purpose. Double check your room for any remaining personal or agency property to ensure you do not bear the expense of having items returned to you. Your weapon can be retrieved at the Security Office. You will be notified before departing of any unreturned materials or financial obligations, i.e., missing uniform items. If you have already departed, a letter will be sent to your employing organization requesting assistance in resolving the matter. See the Transportation section for information on airport departure times.
