College Students

The Navy and Marine Corps' non-scholarship options allow a student to enroll in the NROTC program via their local NROTC unit. Students must contact their local unit and enroll prior to completion of their sophomore year. To continue beyond sophomore year, students must be selected for Advanced Standing status or be awarded a Two Year Scholarship. Advanced Standing status is managed by the Naval Service Training Command and permits a student to continue in the NROTC program for their junior and senior years. This status allows them a monthly stipend and summer training prior to their senior year.
