  •  Can I pay for my tuition?
    No, you may not pay for your own tuition. Per Title 10, all NPS students must be sponsored by their commands or employer. Therefore, the commands/employer transfer funds to NPS via a funding document. DoD contractor companies will send a check payable to the U.S. Treasury to NPS.

    Funding must be confirmed by those who have Financial Signature authority, i.e. Comptroller or Financial Officer, before the prospective student is accepted/enrolled in any of the NPS programs.

  •  My Acquisition Workforce Tuition Assistance Program (AWTAP) application for NPS has been approved, but I read on the website that NPS does NOT accept tuition assistance. Does this apply to AWTAP as well?
    No, this does NOT apply to AWTAP funding.

  •  For the tuition POC on my application, should I put my own information as the central POC for different funding sources?
    Tuition POC should be from your command's finance office who can commit funds to cover the full tuition.

  •  If I cannot get the entire tuition covered by AWTAP and my program office, is direct deposit accepted from personal checking accounts? I read that personal checks are not accepted.
    NPS is not authorized to accept payments directly from students.
    All NPS students are required to be sponsored by their commands.

    FYI: AWTAP funds $10K a year maximum so your command will have to cover the rest of the tuition. AWTAP does not pay for books.

  •  Does NPS accept payments through the VA GI Bill/Post 9-11 benefits?

  •  I am currently enrolled at NPS and I was wondering if I should be expecting to receive a form 1098-T that states I've paid tuition to submit with my taxes.
    NPS does not issue IRS Form 1098-T. Since all NPS students are technically under full command/employer sponsorship, NPS does not provide this form.
