DEFENSE ACTIVITY FOR
Through DANTES, military personnel can take
college entrance tests as well as tests for college credits.
DANTES publishes an independent study guide and
distributes the American Council on Education (ACE)
Guide, which is used by colleges and universities to
recommend college credit for military training.
ENLISTED EDUCATION ADVANCEMENT
The EEAP provides an opportunity for highly
qualified and career motivated enlisted personnel to
earn an associate/bachelor of arts or associate/bachelor
of science degree.
Primary consideration for selection to EEAP is the
sea/shore rotation cycle as it affects the potentially
limited opportunity to participate in off-duty education
and the Career Reenlistment Objectives (CREO) of the
members particular rating. Other considerations
include performance evaluations, performance in Navy
schools, and evidence of individual effort to advance
academically while in the Navy.
Selectees receive full pay and allowances and may
compete for advancement while enrolled in the
program, but are not eligible for proficiency pay (except
submariners who receive continuous submarine
[CONSUB] pay). Selectees must pay for tuition, fees,
books, and other expenses incurred while participating
in the EEAP. The Navy Tuition Assistance Program
may not be used to defray costs while enrolled in the
EEAP. Eligible students may use in-service Veterans
Educational Assistance Program (VEAP) or
Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB) educational benefits
