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