EDUCATION OFFLINE…AT YOUR PACE courses are open to all active duty, their family members, and Veterans.

Coastline’s Extended Learning Division, Programs for Military & Corporate Students, has consolidated its NCPACE-DL, Coast Guard Afloat, and PocketEd programs to enable all of its students to continue their education when Internet connectivity, location, and/or security does not permit consistent access to online courses.

Funding sources for TA vary by service branch.

Education Offline courses do not require Internet connectivity during any part of the course. All assignments are paper-based. Students follow the assignment schedule in the syllabus throughout the 12-week, self-paced class.

All Education Offline courses require a proctor whose function is to ensure the integrity of the exam process. Students will be required to identify a test proctor, either the command Educational Services Officer or command designated representative, along with the proctor’s contact information. Please note that current Coastline students cannot be proctors for other Coastline students.
Once TA has been approved and prior to course start date, students are required to purchase a course packet and textbook, which must be purchased through MBS (Education Offline). Each course packet includes a handbook and media containing the course content. When ordering the packet, select either a CD-ROM or SD Card. You do not need to order both.

Each Education Offline course has a designated instructor who students may contact when they have questions about course content or assignments.

Students must complete the steps to register for an Education Offline course and are encouraged to plan ahead. It is recommended that students start the enrollment process 3 weeks before they plan to start their course(s). NOTE TO ALL SAILORS: Please secure Command authorization for NCPACE-DL TA at least 3 to 6 weeks prior to class start date to ensure the timely delivery of course materials.

A student who has officially registered assumes full responsibility for completing courses. If a course drop/withdrawal is necessary, it is the student’s responsibility to complete the Education Offline Course Drop Form.
