OASC is available on the NKO Learning Tab and on the Navy College Program Website under the academic skills link. Navigation to OASC is also available at (must go via NKO to get free access using password or CAC-PKI ID)*** Avoid Tuition Assistance (TA) Problems with Some Helpful Advice *** To apply for TA go to this site using your CAC ID Card: Follow these guidelines to avoid TA delays or problems:1) Keep your degree plan up to date. If you decide to change degree programs or schools then you must update your records by giving theNavy an updated degree plan.2) Course request must be on degree plan. This goes hand in hand with keeping your degree plan up to date. The course listed on your webTAfunding request must be listed on the degree plan. Carefully check your webTA request before you submit for command approval to be surethat your course numbers/titles are correct and match the course listed on your degree plan.3) Transfer Credit and Degree Plan. If you decide to take a course at a different school and transfer it to your home school (the school that willissue your degree) to meet a degree requirement then be prepared to provide evidence to the VEC that the course you are going to take hasbeen approved by your home school as meeting a course requirement for your degree.4) Always apply for TA BEFORE start date. The Navy will not process any webTA requests if the course has already started. No exceptions orwaivers on this policy.5) Schools are ignorant about TA policy. NEVER rely on a school to provide you with information on Navy TA policy. Contact NCO or go to theNavy College website if you have questions on Navy TA policies or rules. It’s not the school’s job to understand Navy TA policy and when theytry to advise Sailors on TA rules it usually ends up hurting the Sailor. Don’t let this happen to you!
