Spring 2014 Joint Base Andrews: Access Procedures for Civilians BASE ACCESS INFORMATION & COURSE LOCATION SENT VIA OWL MAIL ACTIVATE YOUR ACCOUNT! Civilian students, faculty or staff without military affiliation accessing Joint Base Andrews must follow security clearance procedures in order to obtain a Long Term Badge for base access. Badges are issued at the Base Visitor Center just inside Allentown Rd. Main Gate. Badges are valid only for the days and times noted on the badge. Non-drivers/walkers are discouraged since classrooms are approximately 1 milesfrom the main gate. Bus service is no longer available on the base. Long Term Badges will be issued only to faculty/staff/registered students; badges will not be issued to non-students for any reason. “Chauffers” may not access the base unless they are students themselves. No one will be allowed on base who has not first obtained a Long Term Badge. In order to receive a Long Term Badge, you MUST have a valid driver’s license (or state issued ID if walking), car registration, social security number, proof of current car insurance, proof of course registration and the “Request for a Long Term Badge” form from Andrews Center college staff. You will be fingerprinted digitally for the badge by Andrews AFB Security Police. Return the badge to the Visitor Center or PGCC Andrews office at the end of the semester or if you withdraw or drop the class before the end of the semester. Returned badges are tracked for security reasons. You may be denied access for classes in subsequent semesters if you fail to turn in your badge. Andrews Visitor Center is located at 1832 Robert M Bond Dr, Andrews Air Force Base, just inside the Main Gate off Allentown Road. ****** Procedures to access Joint Base Andrews for Intersession and Spring 2014****** Intersession 2014 students: Call 301-981-5949 January 3-10, 2014 to arrange for base access.
