NSW Education Fairs

CNSWC Public Affairs

Naval Special Warfare’s Education Program is hosting an Education Fair slated for April 19, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Naval Amphibious Base Coronado Galley, building 300 in San Diego. For the East Coast, a fair is slated for May 23-25 at the SEAL Heritage Center in Little Creek, Virginia.

More than a dozen colleges and universities will have representatives at the fairs to assist prospective students with information, enrollments and tuition assistance.

“Many of our students are utilizing their education benefits to continually learn and develop their skills and capacities,” said Sally Lambert, NSW education specialist. “This is an ideal opportunity for them to obtain important information regarding the programs and services offered by these institutions of learning.”

Naval Special Warfare is a highly educated force, with 43% of new enlisted ascensions having at least a 4-year degree. According to Senior Chief Special Warfare Operator Jacob Newbold, senior enlisted advisor, NSW Scout Team, educated operators are “more honed and have more experience with organization and leadership.”

“There is no reason why a Sailor in NSW on shore duty can’t get a degree,” Newbold said.
