NCPACE is a program that provides college courses to eligible Sailors at type 2-4 (sea duty) commands while ashore and afloat using education delivery methods which are compatible with the rigorous demands of sea duty.
First-time TA users must complete prerequisite training listed on the NCP website prior to funding approval, and:
Option 1: If you have not enrolled with Coastline before and need assistance determining how your prior coursework and military training will fit into a Coastline degree, you can receive a free unofficial degree plan. This degree plan will be needed in Step 3 when applying for Tuition Assistance.
Option 2: If you have taken courses with Coastline before, start the process to obtain an Official Education Plan for your Coastline degree.
You select your course start date based on your command’s deployment schedule! Please consider the following when choosing a start date:
Planning ahead is key to successfully receiving TA or NCPACE funding. Sailors must go into the My Education portal to apply and obtain Navy funding. TA requests must be submitted 120 to 14 days prior to the course start date.
