The Maritime Service Compliance System (MSCS) is online and available for graduates to enter annual compliance data.
The Maritime Administration (MARAD) has established a dedicated phone number for service obligation questions and issues. Graduates can call (202) 366-7618 to get answers to questions about their service obligation, employment determination requests (EDR), deferrals, and waivers. Graduates can also still send emails to Maritime.Graduate@dot.gov.
MSCS was disabled for the month of January 2014 to make changes and improvements to the system to make your annual reporting faster, easier, and more user-friendly. To accommodate this delay, the reporting period was shifted by one month; meaning that your 2013 annual report is due between February 1, 2014 and April 1, 2014.
We appreciate your patience as we continue to make enhancements to MSCS to improve your annual reporting capabilities.
