New Student Orientation for the class of 2018 will be held from 9-16 August 2014 aboard
The University of Memphis campus. New Student Orientation is designed to help familiarize
incoming midshipmen with The University of Memphis Naval ROTC program, as well our
policies and requirements. It will also include daily physical training sessions,
swim qualifications, sailing qualifications, classroom instruction, and close order
drill. Although New Student Orientation is not a requirement, all incoming midshipmen,
regardless of program, are highly encouraged to attend.
If you have received a scholarship award confirmation, then you will receive a welcome
aboard letter from our unit by early summer. If you applied for a scholarship, but
have not received a scholarship award confirmation by June 2014, you may still be
eligible to join the Naval ROTC program as a College Program student. Please refer
to our Prospective Students page to find out more information on how to join our program
as a College Program student.
If you have any additional questions, please e-mail either the Navy Recruiting Officer or the Marine Officer Instructor.
