Abstract:
As the number of partnership schools increase and Tuition Assistance dollars are being tightened, students need to carefully consider all options in pursuing their academic goals. Schools must take responsibility in working together effectively and harmoniously as an asset to the military education community. Education offices have decreased resources in ensuring their students are being properly advised. This panel will showcase a group of highly successful, seasoned partnership school representatives who work in a busy college office: Norfolk Naval Station.
