EMI On-Campus Course Applications Tips
NETC staff will review the applications at the conclusion of the open enrollment period (July) and notify applicants regarding their status by mid-August. If you have not received information via email or mail as to your MEPP status by that time, you may contact the NETC Admissions Office at (301) 447-1035 or toll free (800) 238-3358, extension 1035.
In order for the NETC Admissions Office to maintain a current waiting list for the MEP Program, EMI resident MEPP application packages will be valid only for the MEPP Series within the Federal Fiscal Year in which they are submitted and for the MEPP Series numbers indicated on the FEMA Form 119-25-1. After that time, your package will be invalid. You will need to apply during the next open enrollment period with a NEW and updated application package.
The Emergency Management Institute (EMI) is an element of the FEMA’s Protection and National Preparedness (PNP) Directorate.
