New Student Orientation for the class of 2017 will be held from 10-17 August 2013
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 2013, you may still be
eligible to join the Naval ROTC program as a College Program student. Please refer
to our Prespective Students page to find out more information on how to join our program as a College Program
If you have any additional questions, please e-mail either the Navy Recruiting Officer or the Marine Officer Instructor.
