US Naval Community College Extends Deadline for Military Studies, Nuclear Engineering Technology

Recommended Posts

QUANTICO, Va. - The U.S. Naval Community College extended the deadline for applications to the associate of arts in Military Studies and the associate of science in Nuclear Engineering Technology programs to Apr. 17, 2022. This gives more opportunity for active duty enlisted Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen and Coast Guard Reservists to apply to one of these two degree programs.

“We want to ensure the maximum opportunity for application into these programs while still having the time to review applicants for eligibility into the program, receiving command approval, and enrolling into the partner institution,” said USNCC’s director of enrollment Alphonso Garrett. “Through ongoing discussions with our partner institutions, we have developed a process to shorten that timeline to enrollment, which means there is more opportunity for Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen to apply for one of these two programs.”

Those that applied to either degree program by the original deadline of Mar. 27, 2022, will have their applications reviewed and a decision made by Apr. 17. Those that apply between Mar. 27 and Apr. 17 will have their applications reviewed and a decision made in May.

“We anticipate that some applicants may not be able to commit to enrolling in June due to operational tempo and life commitments,” said Garrett. “We still want to provide the opportunity to service members that may be ready to start their journey of lifelong learning.”

This means that the decision-making process would be a rolling process until all of the available seats are filled with eligible and approved candidates. 

“The last thing we want is to have an opportunity for a deserving service member seeking a naval relevant education to go unfulfilled,” said Sgt. Maj. Mike Hensley, USNCC’s command senior enlisted leader. “These educational opportunities support the warfighting capability and operational readiness our naval forces need to maintain a competitive edge over our potential adversaries.”

Active duty enlisted Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen and Coast Guard Reservists can fill out an application for the Military Studies and Nuclear Engineering Technology associate degree programs on the USNCC website, www.usncc.edu. The first courses will start in June 2022.

      On Monday, Feb 6, I went to the car wash on NAS Oceana. When I put 4 dollars worth of coins in the slot water started gushing out from the ceiling. I went to another stall and washed my car. After I was done I went to the N.A.S. Oceana Auto Hobby Shop to inform them of the stall and to get a refund. The individual that I talked to by the name of Paul was very rude and raised his voice when he said he did not have the coins to give me a refund. After asking for his name, he was able to find and then refunded the $4. After that I contacted the MWR office to make a complaint and am expecting a return call from the Deputy Director or Director (as of Feb 8, neither Scott George or Vincent Spagnuolo have contacted me.) Obviously it's not about the 4 dollars, my primary goal is to ensure that MWR staff are not rude to Sailors, family or vets. This is more so for the young Sailors that live in the barracks. Those are our benefits for serving in the military: Active, Reserve, Vet or family. It's odd that with the current mental health issues in the Navy, the MWR cannot get a grip on the fact that they are supposed to be there for morale, welfare and recreation. If you have any complaints about the MWR Auto Hobby Shop on N.A.S. Oceana, you can call them at the contact below. You can also contact me if you wish via the contact form. MWR Oceana - (757) 433-2560 Director: Scott George  Deputy Director: Vincent Spagnuolo

      As a Veteran, you may be eligible for certain tax benefits under the tax code. It’s important to file your taxes before this year’s April 18 deadline and be aware of the benefits that apply to you. Here’s a summary of some of the key tax benefits for military Veterans provided by accountant and tax expert Lisa Greene-Lewis of TurboTax.
