Project Go

Project Global Officer (Project GO) is a Department of Defense initiative aimed at improving the language skills, regional expertise, and intercultural communication skills of future military officers. Sponsored by the Defense Language and National Security Education Office and administered by the Institute of International Education, Project GO provides institutional grants to U.S institutions of higher education with large ROTC student enrollments, to include the Senior Military Colleges.

A typical week for an ASU NROTC Midshipman consists of 2-3 early morning physical training (PT) sessions, 1 leadership lab session, and a 3 credit Naval Science course in addition to a regular full-time academic course load. Midshipmen typically wear a uniform one time per week on the day of leadership lab.

Prospective Midshipmen should expect to spend about 8-10 hours per week dedicated to NROTC activities.

New Student Indoctrination

New Student Indoctrination (NSI) is a three-week training course for incoming freshmen held at Recruit Training Command (RTC), Great Lakes in Great Lakes, Illinois. The indoctrination provides a basic, standardized orientation and instruction period to lay the groundwork for both the next four years of NROTC and for your future as Naval and Marine Corps Officers. You will be trained in fundamental maritime warfighting skills, including firefighting, damage control, seamanship & navigation, force protection and watchstanding.

Application Overview

The Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) Program was established to educate and train young men and women for service as commissioned officers in the Navy or Marine Corps. As the largest single source of Navy and Marine Corps officers, the NROTC Program fills a vital need in preparing mature, young men and women for leadership and management positions in an increasingly technical Navy and Marine Corps.
