Abstract:
The Navy's Web Tuition Assistance Program (WebTA) is a process which allows qualified Service members to create a Tuition Assistance Application request via a paperless online web portal using their office or home computer. Presenters will explain to the audience what WebTA is, discuss the benefits the Web process has provided to the Service and end user, and give a demonstration of the WebTA website. The Navy's Grade Entry Application Portal (Grade Portal) is an online portal tool which allows a designated school representative the ability to process Navy, Marine, or Coast Guard course grades for Service members with approved Tuition Assistance Authorization documents. A demonstration will be provided showing how a school can post grades by individual name query, term date query or upload a preformatted excel spreadsheet.
