How to Join NROTC at Ohio State

Looking to obtain a NROTC National Scholarship? Here’s what you need to know:

High School Students

If you are a high school student looking to apply for a NROTC National Scholarship, you will need to contact your local Navy Recruiter for more information on how to submit an application.

Officer Interviews

If you are in the process of completing your NROTC National Scholarship application and want to conduct an Officer Interview with a Active Duty Staff member at NROTC Ohio State, you can contact the Recruiting Officer, LT Marshall, by clicking here to set up an Officer Interview.

Didn’t receive a NROTC Scholarship?

Eligible high school students that didn’t receive or apply for a NROTC National Scholarship and college students with more than 2 years of college remaining can apply to be a College Program option here at NROTC Ohio State.

College Program options are students who participate in all NROTC unit activities but did not receive a National Scholarship. College Program options generally have the opportunity to apply for two and three-year NROTC scholarships based on the candidate’s actual performance in the program.

It is critical that College Program options perform well during their first two years to be competitive for a scholarship. University’s calculus series (Math 1151, 1152) and the calculus-based physics series (Physics 1250, 1251) will also make one’s record more competitive for selection.

Current College Students

If you have less than 2 years of college remaining, you are not eligible for the NROTC program and should contact your local Navy Recruiter for details about Officer’s Candidate School (OCS).
