The Welcome Aboard Letter (pdf) will guide you through the expectations and procedures of your graduate education tour.
NAVPGSCOLINST 1520.1J (pdf) is the governing instruction for administration and management of both the CIVINS and LEP fully-funded graduate education programs.
Please familiarize yourself with the Welcome Aboard Letter, the instruction, as well as the following forms and requirements:
- Educational Plan (EP)
- EFT Information Sheet
- Civilian Institutions (CIVINS) Student Top 10 Need to Know…
*Note regarding tuition payments and registration*
REIMBURSEMENT NOTICE: The CIVINS Program DOES NOT reimburse for textbooks, course materials, parking or transportation
Due to the payment mechanism in place and the general sequence of events, it is not uncommon for students to receive either statements of account or past due notices. Please forward such notices to your Educational Technician so that they may ensure you remain in good standing.
After you have completed your program there are just a couple final things needed from you:
- Final Transcript/Thesis
- Feedback on Quality of Education
Educational Skill Requirements (ESR's)
Your curriculum will be evaluated against a set of Educational Skill Requirements (ESR) for the subspecialty you hope to attain. If the two are comparable, you may have already earned a P-Code, meaning you have a Master's Degree meeting all the Navy's requirements for a "Proven" subspecialty. If your courses do not match you will receive information as to what additional course work is needed for you to earn a P-Code.
