There are four categories of students attending the Navy SEA (1. NAVY TAD - USN Active Duty and USN Reserve Active Duty/FTS; 2. NAVY PCS; 3. TDY - Partner Services and International; and 4. NAVY SELRES - USN Reserve Inactive). Which category you are in determines who pays for your travel. Typically, 80% or more of our students fall into the first category--NAVY TAD.
Category-1: NAVY TAD Students (USN Active Duty, and FTS, who attend 3-weeks in-residence)
For Navy Active Component and Active Reserve Component (FTS) students who can complete the full 3-weeks in-residence, attending in a TAD status where the SEA funds your travel is the optimum choice. We pay for your to travel from homeport to the SEA and back. You MUST have an active Defense Travel System (DTS) account, and you MUST have an active, non-expired Government Credit Card to attend. Travel information will be available in Blackboard (Bb) once the course starts so you can complete your DTS Authorization (aka Travel Orders) and Voucher (aka Travel Claim).
Category-2: NAVY PCS Students (TDY)
For NAVY PCS students, the detailer pays for your travel. You simply show up per your PCS orders. The SEA does not have any role in generating your orders or your funding.
Category-3: Partner Service Students (TDY)
For Partner Service students, your individual service picks up the travel tab. The SEA does not have any role in generating your orders or your funding.
Category-3: International Partner Students (TDY)
For International Partner students, your individual country Security Cooperation Organization (SCO) coordinates funding. The SEA does not have any role in generating your orders or your funding. For questions/guidance, contact the SEA international military student officer at SEA_IMSO@usnwc.edu.
