The Navy provides educational benefits to
members through the ESO, CCC, Navy College
Offices, and DANTES. ESOs must make sure all
persons are aware of these benefits. ESOs should
guide Navy people as they pursue the various voluntary
education programs. ESOs and civilian education
specialists/guidance counselors should assist naval
personnel in selecting the goals that are right for them.
As an ESO you will find it rewarding to help personnel
attain their goals.
Because of the many instructions and publications that
govern educational programs, ESOs must have up-to-date
information. They should check with the local Navy
College Office or the VA to get the latest educational
benefits information. ESOs should also make every effort
to attend the ESO workshops offered by Navy College
Offices at various locations around the world.
To find out where the Navy College Offices are
located and points of contacts at these offices, access
the Navy College Program web site.
