Navy College Program for Afloat College Education

As an educational partner of the U.S. Navy, Saint Leo University offers rate-related degree programs to shipboard personnel.

Navy College Program for Afloat College Education (NCPACE) is a great alternative if you cannot attend the regularly scheduled classroom format, or are looking for the convenience of a self-paced study environment.


Study at Sea

While you’re at sea, you might be far from a classroom and from reliable internet access—but your educational goals are still within reach. As a Saint Leo NCPACE student, you’ll enjoy access to the same courses whether ashore or at sea. CD-ROM —with offline access—offer continued study even in remote, deployed environments. 


Free Tuition

The Navy funds tuition 100%. Sailors only pay for textbooks and other course materials.


Transfer Credits

Saint Leo accepts transfer credits from accredited institutions. Make maximum use of your military training and professional experience to fulfill degree requirements. Contact your Navy College Office or Saint Leo University to learn more about eligibility and program requirements. Learn more about transferring credits to Saint Leo.
