College Program & Advanced Standing

College Program and Advanced Standing Midshipmen are students that are not currently recipients of a full NROTC scholarship but are vital members of our battalion. These students are either receiving advanced standing benefits or still competing for scholarships. College Program and Advanced Standing students receive leadership opportunities in the battalion, have Naval Science course requirements and are held to the same institutional standards as our scholarship and active duty students, and the staff.
