All ODS Students will purchase the Navy Working Uniform (NWUs) while at ODS. Prior Enlisted Sailors should bring their NWU uniform with them updated to reflect their correct designator, rank, and gold name tapes and gold U.S. Navy tapes.
You will purchase all necessary uniforms during your first week of training at ODS. Students should estimate to spend approximately $2,000-$3,000 for their uniforms. The attached uniform requirements list provides students with a general list of which uniform items they will be purchasing while attending ODS. The prices that are listed are subject to change without notice.
For prior service military, if you already own uniforms on the attached list, you will need to bring them. This will alleviate you from having to repurchase them. Below is a link of all necessary uniform items along with cost.
Students will have an established account created for them at the Uniform Shop. Students will pay down their account to $700 during Week Five of Training. Students have the ability to apply for the Star Card during this time for a 10% discount on all purchases. If you decide to use the Star Card do not apply for it until the day you pay down your Uniform Account as the discount only applies to purchases on that day. More information will be provided to you throughout your training.
