Service members must send a housing application (DD Form 1746) accompanied by a copy of either Web Orders or Permanent Change of Station (PCS) Orders along with completed disclosures to the Family Housing Office in order to be placed on the appropriate waiting list prior to reporting in. Once a member has reported aboard, he or she must present a copy of the reporting endorsement.

A control date will not be established without receipt of these documents. If the application, along with all qualifying documents and PCS orders are received separately, the control date will be established upon the receipt of the latest document.
