CHAPTER 2 EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS AND BENEFITS The educational services officer (ESO) is part of a team  that  helps  personnel  achieve  their  educational goals.  Those goals could be to complete high school, complete a vocational-technical certificate, or earn a college degree.  The success of the various voluntary education programs is directly affected by the extent to which  the  ESO  is  knowledgeable  about  voluntary education opportunities. The  Navy  encourages  active-duty  personnel  to take part in off-duty voluntary education and over the past  few  years  has  made  great  strides  in  providing Sailors  the  opportunity  to  further  their  education. Because our country values educational achievement and  the  Navy  wants  to  retain  competent  personnel, voluntary education programs have special value. An enhanced military education program, called the Navy  College  Program  (NCP),  was  developed  to provide Sailors the education necessary to handle the increased requirements of a high-tech Navy.  Key to the NCP  is  partnerships  between  the  Navy  and  specific accredited colleges/universities to enable the award of college credit for military training and experience. The academic  world  recognizes  the  excellent  quality  of Navy training and this recognition is growing. Courses completed in military schools were the first noncampus courses  in  the  country  the  American  Council  on Education  (ACE)  recommended  for  college-level credit, and ACE plays a major role in the NCP.                     NAVY COLLEGE PROGRAM Mission: To enable Sailors to obtain a college degree while on active duty Vision: –  A single system that integrates all components of off-duty education –  A  comprehensive,  recognizable  program  to attract high quality recruits –  A  command  climate  that  recognizes  the contribution  of  off-duty  education  to  profes- sional development –  Increased college opportunity for every Sailor Components: –  Individual  roadmap  to  associate  and  bachelor degree for every Sailor –  Academic credit for Navy training –  Automatic eligibility for NCP –  Partnerships with institutions of higher learning,   SOCNAV and NCP partners –  Career-long  academic  advice  regardless  of location –  Automatic  transcript  (SMART)  at  key  career junctures –  Tuition  Assistance,  NCPACE,  DANTES, Academic Skills –  Navy College Offices (local) –  Navy  College  Center  –  web  site  http:// www.navycollege.navy.mil  e-mail  ncc@ smtp.cnet.navy.mil/ 1-877-253-7122. The  implementation  of  the  Navy  College  Program (NCP) began in FY00, and as a result, the Navy Campus Education  Centers  were  renamed  the  Navy  College Offices.    These  offices  can  provide  any  ESO  further information  about  the  program  and  its  specific components. In  this  chapter  we  will  discuss  the  following information: Navy  College  Offices  and  Educational Opportunities pursued through them Academic  credit  for  Navy  training  and  work experiences Key Role of Navy College Offices’  Education Specialists/Guidance Counselors ESO  workshops  conducted  by  Navy  College Offices The Tuition Assistance (TA) Program The Academic Skills Program 2-1
