Program Overview

The NROTC Unit at the University of Missouri molds civilians into Naval Officers. We do this while the student completes a bachelor’s degree program. Immediately upon graduation and completion of NROTC requirements, students are commissioned as Ensigns in the U.S. Navy or Second Lieutenants in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Mizzou NROTC introduces the fundamental principles of the United States Navy and Marine Corps⁠—personal integrity, honor, individual responsibility—and provides an educational background that facilitates continuing education in Navy and Marine Corps related fields.

The NROTC Program not only provides an outstanding opportunity for students to become commissioned officers in the Navy and Marine Corps, it also aids in developing moral courage, mental acuity and physical strength. Being a member of the NROTC Program will allow you to become a leader and discover traits you never knew you had.

Utilize Your Resources

The University of Missouri NROTC program has various resources available to Midshipmen. These include a computer lab, study room facility, lockers, and tutors and mentors (if requested).

Become A Leader

The University of Missouri NROTC is an ideal program in which to build leadership ability. Daily operations are run by the midshipmen staff with billets ranging from fire-team leader to Battalion Commander, providing students with regular opportunities to hone leadership skills.

Compete in Regional Drill Meets

The University of Missouri NROTC program competes in regional drill meets every semester against other NROTC programs. Events include an endurance race, flag football, platoon drill, squad drill, color-guard, rifle/pistol qualifications, pull-ups and more. In 2018, Mizzou NROTC participated at both the Ohio State University and University of Wisconsin drill meet and placed second and first respectively. These drill meets are challenging, fun and build camaraderie within the unit.
