NAVY COLLEGE RATING PARTNERS
In response to the Sailors need for greater access
to higher education, the Navy College Program has
developed new partnerships with colleges and
universities to offer rating-related degrees via distance
learning to Sailors everywhere.
As members of SOCNAV, these new education
partnerships provide associates and bachelors degree
programs related to each rating and make maximum
use of military professional training and experience to
fulfill degree requirements.
The program also provides opportunities to take
courses through distance learning so that Sailors
anywhere will be able to pursue a degree. The goal of
the NCRP Schools is to support both the Sailors
mobile lifestyle and educational goals. Courses are
offered in a variety of formats such as CD-ROM,
