Marine Option

Marine Option students must only take the previously listed international affairs and cultural studies courses or their equivalent as approved by the professor of naval science.

Any additional requirements are based on whether or not the student is in a technical or nontechnical major, a Navy Option or Marine Option student, and a scholarship or nonscholarship recipient. Each student must obtain from the NROTC Department a complete description of program requirements since the above statement is only a general outline. Students may apply a maximum of 4 credit hours in basic ROTC courses and six credit hours in advanced ROTC courses toward meeting the free elective requirements for any degree.
