The NROTC Unit at the University of Missouri is in the business of molding civilians into Naval Officers. We do this while the student completes a Bachelor’s degree. 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 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.If you have come this far, then you are probably considering becoming a Midshipman. So the question you may have is: Why should I choose the University of Missouri NROTC?

These drill meets are challenging, fun, and builds camaraderie within the unit.
