The College Program is a way for students who do not enter NROTC on a scholarship to join the unit, and in doing so, working towards earning a scholarship. College Program participants participate in unit events and apply for a scholarship while a part of the unit. As a College Program Midshipmen, there is no financial or service obligation. 

The College Program Midshipmen who do recieve a scholarshiip will have the same benefits and service obligations as Midshipmen with a four year scholarship. 

If a College Program Midshipmen has not recieved a scholarship by the beginning of his or her junior year, he/she may apply for advanced standing. Advanced standing allows qualified students to continue in the program, recieve a monthly stipend, and commission upon graduation, but they do not recieve a scholarship.
