Navy Implements Change to Education Program Announcements

From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

 The Navy announced that education program information, application processes and deadlines will be announced through personalized notifications to eligible Sailors in NAVADMIN 106/19, May 10.

In an effort to reduce administrative distractions, education program announcements will no longer be disseminated through NAVADMIN messages.  Instead, these announcements will now be delivered to individuals by notifications within MyNavy Education, according to the Fiscal Year 2020 (FY20) Navy Strategic Education and Academic (SEA) Plan.

To receive the most up-to-date education program information, Sailors are strongly encouraged to login to MyNavy Education to update their profile and email addresses.  Each Sailor can provide up to two email accounts, including work and personal addresses, to which the MyNavy Education system will send an email alert when a new notification is available.

The FY20 SEA Plan replaces the legacy Graduate Education Quota Plan and reflects the Navy’s efforts to shift from quota-based approaches to talent management.  The plan aims to ensure the highest performing Sailors are encouraged and placed in selective graduate level programs that will enhance our warfighting capabilities and sustain our maritime superiority.

As first announced in NAVADMIN 263/18, selections for FY20 SEA Plan in-residence graduate education and joint professional military education opportunities for unrestricted line officers will be made through administrative boards to screen the most fully qualified, due course officers for top-line, key competitive in-residence education programs.

Graduate education supports our National Defense Strategy by developing Navy leaders who understand the art and science of warfighting and can lead in complex strategic environments. Intellectual leadership, groomed through graduate education, goes beyond adaptation of new technology to include promoting ideas, values, understanding, vision, approaches and actions.

The FY20 SEA Plan provides over 1,200 opportunities for degree and non-degree programs across the full spectrum of communities and ranks.  A list and overview of these programs can be found at: https://www.mnp.navy.mil/group/training-education-qualifications/e-graduate-education-and-fellowship-programs.
