Commanding Officer's Letter
Thank you for taking the time to learn about the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps at the University of Oklahoma. OU NROTC graduates possess a sound professional background, are motivated toward careers in the naval service, and have demonstrated the leadership necessary to lead Sailors and Marines. If you are ready for a university education with the additional challenge of leadership and service in the United States Navy or Marine Corps, you’ve come to the right place.
NROTC at the University of Oklahoma develops students mentally, morally and physically while inspiring them with the highest ideals of duty and loyalty. Drawing on Navy and Marine Corps values of honor, courage and commitment, our program prepares young men and women for graduation from the University and for a commission as an officer in the Navy or Marine Corps.
The University of Oklahoma is located in Norman, Oklahoma. As a member of the Big 12 athletic conference, life at the University is certain to stimulate the spirit as well as the mind. Furthermore, our NROTC midshipmen complete an exciting training program each summer in locations all over the world. This training is just a part of the regimen to prepare our students for leadership in the Fleet.
OU NROTC offers opportunities for students to earn a commission in a variety of ways; NROTC scholarships, college program and enlisted commissioning programs. To learn more about NROTC scholarship application requirements, please click here.
Selected applicants for the NROTC Scholarship Program are awarded scholarships through a highly competitive national selection process. Scholarship selectees receive full tuition, books, educational fees at the University of Oklahoma, and a monthly subsistence allowance. The scholarship application process is roughly the same as that for admission to the University; starting in the junior year of high school is a great way to stay ahead of deadlines!
If you do not receive a National Scholarship you can still join our program as a College Program student. As a College Program student, you will participate in all activities during the academic year while competing for a 3-year scholarship, 2-year scholarship, or designation as an Advanced Standing College Program student, all of which lead to potential commissioning in to the U.S. Navy or U.S. Marine Corps. Furthermore, all active College Program students are eligible for in-state tuition rates at OU.
