1. No 2. I don’t really think they will care. You most likely will be living off post anyways. But if you do bring your family you will be paying for it out of your own pocket, as the Army is only providing Per Diem for you to reside there, and not your family.
I personally would not recommend bringing your family to CISAC. While I understand that you are coming off of a long deployment. CISAC can be a very intensive course with a lot of long days. Having your family present could prove to be an unnecessary distraction.

Waiting on my school date for CISAC as well. Was wondering, should I expect anything from branch aside from my ATRRS school reservation? The ATRRS site doesn't have a whole lot of info. I've managed to establish that I'll need civ clothes, suits, and acu/apfu. Any other random tips anyone might have?
I was approved for the course a couple of months ago. I have an ATRRS reservation for mid summer. A buddy of mine has been waiting almost 5 months for his approval from HRC, mine took just over 2 1/2 months. I'm pretty sure they are backlogged due to the move to Knox.
I was told that you could pay out of pocket to get your family out there, and you would only get per-diem at a single soldier rate. From what I was read on the regulations, you will have a follow on assignment prior to reporting to CISAC and you could potentially send them to your follow on assignement. Go to the website tydhousing.com when you get your school date and reserve an apartment.
I'm in the process of putting together an application packet for the 35L school as well. I am E5 promotable with 749 points. I've noticed that the cutoff for E6 for 35L is 450. My question is, do I retain promotable status upon completion of the course and change of PMOS, and if so am I going to make cutoff the first month as a 35L?
