Navy College Program for Afloat College Education -Continued
NAVY COLLEGE PROGRAM FOR AFLOAT COLLEGE EDUCATION The  Navy  College  Program  for  Afloat  College Education (NCPACE) is an integral part of the Navy’s Voluntary Education program.  As personnel rotate to complete  Navy  assignments,  NCPACE  permits  the initiation  and  continuation  of  progress  toward  an academic degree. NCPACE provides an atmosphere in which students can experience a challenging education in a shipboard or remote site environment, preparing them  for  personal  as  well  as  professional  growth. Under NCPACE, academic skills and college courses are available through both instructor and technology delivered  methods.     All  college  courses  are  fully transferable  and  are  provided  from  accredited SOCNAV institutions. Commands with a sea duty UIC and  specifically  selected  remote  sites  are  eligible  to participate in NCPACE.  Education services under the NCPACE contract include:    ORIENTATION  SERVICES:     A  session  or series of sessions during which potential students for either instructor or technology delivered courses are provided a crew brief, assessed as to their interests and abilities using an education needs assessment survey, placement   tested,   counseled   on   eligibility requirements,  and,  if  applicable,  familiarized  with computer  hardware  and  software.     Experience suggests multiple orientation sessions may take a week for small ships (fewer than 250 personnel) and as long as a month to 6 weeks for aircraft carriers. This service includes training of the NCPACE team and academic skills  facilitator.    At  remote  sites,  counseling  and assistance is provided for using tuition assistance to fund  college  courses.    Using  Orientation  Services’ recommendations,  the  commanding  officer  may choose the instructional modes of delivery and number of  courses  to  be  provided  to  the  crew.    Computer, instructor, and/or video teleconferencing courses are requested  after  Orientation  Services  are  completed. The contractor provides more than 200 courses from which to choose.    COMPUTER-DELIVERED  COURSES:  This program  uses  computer-based  technology  to  provide academic skills and college-level courses.   Computer courses use one of three formats: Computer Interactive Video,  CD-ROM,  or  Internet.    The  contractor  will provide computers, or commands may elect to use their own computers for CD-ROM and Internet courses.  A resident instructor is not required.  A limited number of graduate level CD-ROM courses can be provided.    INSTRUCTOR-TAUGHT  COURSES:  This program  provides  academic  skills  and  college-level instruction  and  requires  the  deployment  of  a  civilian instructor.    VIDEO   TELECONFERENCING   (VTC) COURSES:  A limited number of graduate courses can be   provided   via   VTC   if   the   command   has   the appropriate equipment. NCPACE   course   eligibility   is   based   on   the following guidelines:    Computer-delivered  course  eligibility  is  based on  minimum  test  scores  established  by  the institution to qualify the student for enrollment in that course.    Instructor-taught  course  eligibility  is  based  on screening and placement testing.    NCPACE   offers   Academic   Skills   and undergraduate/graduate level courses.    Other   than   at   remote   sites,   NCPACE   is offered at no tuition cost to service members; however,   members   enrolling   in   college courses  must  pay  for  textbooks,  workbooks, and lab fees.    The minimum order for computer-delivered courses is  5  enrollments,  with  a  maximum  of  20  per computer system; for instructor-taught courses the minimum  class  size  is  10  students.   A  minimum course order for instructor courses is two courses in the same academic discipline or two sections of the same course.    NCPACE  students  are  under  no  obligation  to extend their obligated service enlistment. NCPACE   instructor   college   class   terms   are accelerated  and  last  between  6  to  8  weeks. Most computer course terms are 90 days.  VTC and Internet courses   may   use   the   terms   established   by   the institution.  All courses offered have the same content as those on campus and carry resident college credit. The registrar of the contract school maintains student transcripts. ESOs   should   coordinate   and   plan   NCPACE courses  with  the  authorized  contractor,  being  sure  to keep  the  Navy  College  Office  education  specialists serving  the  command  informed  and  using  them  as  a guide.  ESOs  should  begin  planning  for  NCPACE courses  well  in  advance  of  the  ship’s  scheduled deployment (2 to 3 months).  The Navy College Office 2-7
