The Navy Supply Corps School (NSCS) is a 27-week training and "Basic Qualification Course" in the United States.[1] Those who complete the course become Commissioned officers in the Navy Supply Corps.

The Navy Supply School is located in Newport, Rhode Island. It was previously located in Athens, Georgia, until 2011, when the campus was closed due to budget cuts.

History[edit]

NSCS occupied a 58 acres (23 ha) campus with a lengthy history. The site had been used as a school since the 1860s, first for the University of Georgia's University High School, then as a Confederate military school, and at the end of the U.S. Civil War, a federal garrison. In 1866, the site housed a school for disabled young Confederate veterans, which existed with state support for two years. It was then used as a state normal school from 1891 until the 1950s, when it was taken over by the NSCS.

The Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission of 2005 closed NSCS and re-located it to Naval Station Newport, Rhode Island in 2011. The land the school once occupied is now being used by the University of Georgia's UGA-GRU Medical Partnership as the part of the UGA Health Science Campus. In the summer of 2012, the UGA-GRU medical students and faculty and of the University of Georgia College of Public Health fully occupied the campus.[2]
