The Navy College Program for Afloat Education (NCPACE) gives active duty officer and enlisted members the opportunity to continue their personal and professional growth while on sea duty assignments. NCPACE provides distance education to deployed submarines and other eligible afloat units. NCPACE courses use self-contained, distance learn technologies and provide undergraduate and graduate courses leading to degrees offered by participating colleges and universities. NCPACE courses are provided tuition-free but individuals must pay for textbooks and other educational materials.
