As the largest single source of Navy and Marine Corps officers, the NROTC Program plays an important role in preparing mature young men and women for leadership and management positions in an increasingly technical Navy and Marine Corps.

The Navy offers money for college as well. Selected applicants for the Four-Year NROTC Scholarship Program are awarded the scholarship through a highly competitive national selection process. Winners receive full tuition, books, fees and other financial benefits at many of the country’s leading colleges and universities, including MSOE. Upon graduation, midshipmen are commissioned as officers in the unrestricted line Naval Reserve or Marine Corps Reserve. The NROTC Four-Year Scholarship Program is available to qualified students who graduate from high school before Aug. 1 of the year they intend to start college. However, if this deadline is missed, students have the opportunity to earn two- or three-year scholarships as well.

At MSOE, the mission of the NROTC unit is to develop Midshipmen morally, mentally and physically, and imbue them with the highest ideals of duty, honor and loyalty. We commission college graduates as officers in the United States Navy who possess a basic professional background, are motivated toward careers in the naval service, and have a potential for future development in mind and character. These graduates are then prepped to assume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship and government.

Students who enroll in NROTC at MSOE do so as “cross-town” students. Required NROTC courses are taught by the Naval Science faculty at the Marquette University campus. The remainder of their major is completed at MSOE.
