The Navy College counselors provide academic and vocational counseling to assist individuals in establishing short and long range goals so that they may achieve their own personal educational goals. Individual counseling sessions are provided for those who require more specific information and guidance. During the course of the session, the counselor may recommend various options and strategies to assist the client. Some of the strategies may include: referral to an on base or local school representative; use of the DANTES testing program; information on financial aid such as Tuition Assistance, Veterans' Benefits or VEAP; information on career and vocational choices; descriptive materials on college and vocational correspondence courses; referral to Academic Skills; information on external degree programs; enrollment into SOCNAV 2 and SOCNAV 4 college degree programs. See below for more information on career and vocational choices:
