There are two ways to commission as an Officer in the United States Navy or Marine Corps. One is by applying for a 4-year Scholarship by January of your senior year in high school, or by January of your freshman year in College.  The second is to apply directly through the NROTC unit you are interested in as a College Program student.

To apply for a 4-year national scholarship you can apply online using the link below or get with your nearest recruiter. The NROTC unit itself does not provide detailed information on the 4-year scholarship application process.  For students in the Rocky Mountain Region see link below to the Recruiters Office in Denver, CO. If you are awarded a scholarship, you will attend New Student Orientation – NSI in the summer of 2021.
