Navy Budget Proposal Closes Most Navy College Offices -

The Navy is planning to close most of its Navy College offices in CONUS by 2016. The closings are part of a budget cutting reorganization plan the Navy has submitted to the Department of Defense for fiscal year 2017. The Navy says it can close most of its 33 Navy College offices in CONUS and still preserve customer service by switching most of the services offered at walk-in offices to its Virtual Education Center (VEC) which is comprised of a website and hotline. Many programs such as Tuition Assistance and the Joint Services Transcript have been available online for years so sources at the Navy Education & Training Command (NETC) feel that pushing the use of self-service through the VEC will not be a major adjustment for the average sailor.
