Navy College Program for Afloat College Education
Through NCPACE, Marine Corps and Navy servicemembers may take undergraduate, graduate or adult-learning courses while on sea-duty UIC of type 2 or 4. Your command makes an assessment of what courses are available and needed, and then orders the appropriate materials from the Naval Educational and Training Professional Development and Technology Center (NETPDTC). The command will notify you when there are courses available to take. Check the Eligibility section of the NCPACE website to see if your assignment qualifies you to take NCPACE courses.
