We welcome non-scholarship students who are entering their freshmen or sophomore year at the University of Florida to join the NROTC unit and begin the process of working towards a commission as a Navy or Marine Corps Officer.

College Program midshipmen have the opportunity to earn a 2 or 3 year academic scholarship. College Program students will also be considered for Advanced Standing.  Advanced Standing students are guaranteed a commission in the Navy or Marine Corps and will receive a monthly living stipend, but Advance Standing midshipmen are responsible for their own tuition costs.  Scholarship and advanced standing opportunities for college program midshipmen are heavily influenced by the student’s academic performance and standing within the NROTC unit.  The number of scholarships and advanced standing positions available every year varies due to the future manning needs of the Navy.

College program midshipmen accepted into the NROTC program are provided uniforms and any academic items expressly needed by NROTC courses or activities. College Program midshipmen are responsible for their own tuition and living expenses.  All College Program midshipmen participate in all NROTC activities just like their scholarship peers.  All students, including College Program midshipmen, are provided mentoring and academic counseling by the NROTC staff focusing on the midshipmen’s academic, leadership, and physical development.

Interested applicants will be required to fill out a College Program application (documents below) and will be interviewed by the NROTC staff to determine their suitability for the program.

If you would like to ask questions, please contact our Recruiting Officer via the information listed on the Unit Contacts page.
