Please be aware that the China Lake, CA Navy College Office (NCO) has closed permanently as of 1OCT10 and there will no longer be a NCO representative onboard NAWS. Applications for TA will be submitted online from now on and the FFSC will provide a step by step process sheet for those interested. The FFSC will certainly assist members with this process however we can. A test proctor will still be available for those who need test proctors. We do apologize sincerely for the inconvenience this might cause but NC Rep’s at the NCO headquarters office will be available by phone during normal working hour’s onboard NAS Lemoore and Pt. Mugu installations. We hope this does not defer you from furthering your education in the US Armed Forces. Please call the FFSC at DSN 312-437-4545 or commercial 760-939-4545 for further information.
