MSGID/GENADMIN/CNO WASHINGTON DC/N1/FEB//

RMKS/1.  Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) offers defense-focused master�s 
degrees and graduate certificates to develop quantitative skills and 
competencies, producing graduates with the disciplined analytical approach to 
problem solving that is essential to an effective, dynamic defense 
enterprise.  NPS is dedicated to providing relevant, high quality education, 
to empower the next generation of leadership in the Department of Defense 
(DoD).  A variety of delivery methods are utilized to expand learning beyond 
the traditional classroom.

2.  NPS Distance Learning (DL) programs are part-time programs (usually 12 to 
24 months) for mid-grade military officers and DoD civilian leaders who are 
unable to attend NPS residential graduate programs.  Graduate certificates 
are also available to qualified enlisted personnel.  DoD contractor personnel 
applications will be considered for admission on a space available basis.  
Student application forms are available at:
http://www.nps.edu/Academics/Admissions/ApplyOnline/ApplyNow.html.

3.  Mission funded seats are available to eligible active-duty United States 
Navy and United States Marine Corps (USMC) officers at no cost to the service 
member.  With the exception of mission funded seats, all others must be 
sponsored by an agency, an employer or a command.  USMC officers will apply 
through the USMC Distance Learning Program advertised in the corresponding 
annual MARADMIN message.  United States Navy Reserve officers are not 
eligible for any NPS program.  Funds can be transferred to NPS using an
Authorization, Agreement and Certification of Training (SF 182) form with a
