COMMISSIONS. NROTC students will be commissioned in the U.S. Navy or Marine Corps upon successful completion of the NROTC curriculum and after receipt of the baccalaureate degree, if they are qualified in all other respects and approved by the Chief of Naval Personnel or Commandant of the Marine Corps and the Secretary of the Navy.
SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL AID. NROTC scholarship students are selected by nationwide competition conducted annually and by nomination of the professor of naval science. They receive Navy scholarships which consist of tuition, fees, books, and between $200 and $250 monthly subsistence allowances. All NROTC scholarship students living on campus receive a partial dormitory scholarship. NROTC students not on scholarship are selected by the professor of naval science from those students who apply during registration. They receive Navy subsistence allowances of between $250 and $350 each month during their junior and senior years. NROTC students are provided with uniforms and naval science textbooks. Scholarship students participate in three summer cruises, while all other NROTC students participate in one summer cruise.
