Navy College program goes online


The Navy is closing its physical Navy College offices and bringing the entire business online as of Friday.

The transition to Navy College’s virtual education center for sailors seeking additional training proved successful in 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic forced the closure of physical offices abroad, according to a statement. of the Navy announcing the change.

The online training center allows sailors to receive advice and assistance with tuition fees, while also offering calls and live chats with advisers at certain times, according to the Navy.

Civilian schools with offices aboard Navy bases in the United States and overseas will remain in place.

The Navy has closed its Navy College offices in the United States in recent years, and Friday’s change will affect overseas locations in Rota, Spain, Sigonella and Naples, Italy, Misawa, Yokosuka, Atsugi, Sasebo and Okinawa, Japan, Guam, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

“Sailors interested in pursuing educational opportunities outside of duty hours will continue to have a wide range of virtual services available,” said Lt. Cmdr, director of Navy Voluntary Education (VOLED). Adam Walski said in the statement. “Most importantly, services will not be interrupted for those who need educational assistance or advice anywhere in the world.”
