The Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) Program at Jacksonville University is
designed to educate and train qualified young men and women for service
as commissioned officers in the Navy or Marine Corps. NROTC prepares
mature young men and women morally, mentally, and physically for
leadership and management positions in an increasingly technical
military. In addition, participation in the naval science program
instills in students the highest ideals of duty, honor and loyalty.
There are two ways to participate in the NROTC program, the
Scholarship Program and the College Program. Under both the Scholarship
and College Program, students are expected to attend naval science
classes and drill periods. College Program students may apply for
scholarship status after demonstrating successful performance in the
NROTC program. Uniforms are provided for all students. The Scholarship
Program also pays for full tuition, fees, books, and other related
educational costs including a subsistence allowance of $200-$350 per
month based on class standing.
Jacksonville University offers Room
and Board Scholarships and College Program Room and Board Scholarships
or cash stipends (married students only) to eligible NROTC midshipman.
Seaman-To-Admiral 21 officer candidates are eligible for the JUMP In
program provided by Jacksonville University. This matching funds program
provides additional assistance for Officer Candidates who are pursuing a
degree at Jacksonville University.
