This thesis analyzes the Sailors academic success in the TA-funded courses taken in the Navy College Program Distance Learning Partnership (NCPDLP) Program partner institutions. This study also investigates the effect of institutional characteristics on the academic success of students. The data files obtained from Navy Education and Training Command (NETC) and Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System are merged to generate the data set used in the analysis. The analysis suggests that Sailors who take courses via Distance Learning (DL) methods in the NCPDLP partner schools have lower course completion rates and lower grade point averages than Sailors who take DL courses in other types of schools. The analysis also indicates that Sailors who enroll in private for-profit schools receive higher grades in TA-funded courses than Sailors who enroll in public or private nonprofit schools.
