Local Base Support

The Jacksonville-area Navy base programs exist for the purpose of increasing availability of educational opportunities for military service personnel, their family members and federal government employees.

To accomplish this mission the College provides:

  • College credit courses with an emphasis on the General Education Requirements offered at each base during FSCJ's regular terms and accelerated eight-week terms.
  • Classes are offered on base in a sequential program, enabling enrollment throughout the year in the A.A. and selected A.S. programs.
  • A full range of advising, registration, and orientation services, including entry placement testing.
  • A liaison with the military educational service officers to assist students in the use of the military service financial aid programs.
  • Non-credit College courses for students desiring to upgrade career and occupational skills or those seeking personal enrichment.

Note: For security purposes, all non-Department of Defense (DoD) students taking classes on base who do not already have access to the military bases must provide the following information prior to the beginning of each semester: driver’s license, proof of insurance, registration and a notarized letter if the car isn’t registered in his or her name. This information must be provided to the pass and decal office at the main gate. Otherwise, base access will be denied.
