Can I pay for my tuition?
No, you may not pay for your own tuition. Per Title 10, all NPS students must be sponsored by their commands or employer. Therefore, the commands/employer transfer funds to NPS via a funding document. DoD contractor companies will send a check payable to the U.S. Treasury to NPS.

Funding must be confirmed by those who have Financial Signature authority, i.e. Comptroller or Financial Officer, before the prospective student is accepted/enrolled in any of the NPS programs.

Tuition POC should be from your command's finance office who can commit funds to cover the full tuition.

If I cannot get the entire tuition covered by AWTAP and my program office, is direct deposit accepted from personal checking accounts? I read that personal checks are not accepted.
NPS is not authorized to accept payments directly from students.
All NPS students are required to be sponsored by their commands.

FYI: AWTAP funds $10K a year maximum so your command will have to cover the rest of the tuition. AWTAP does not pay for books.

NPS does not issue IRS Form 1098-T. Since all NPS students are technically under full command/employer sponsorship, NPS does not provide this form.
