Active Duty General Information
Active duty students are treated according to their rank, however they can also expect to be treated accordingly with their Midshipman year-group counterparts. All active duty personnel still receive full pay and benefits which includes BAH.
STA-21 students have three years (36 months) to complete their degree while MECEP students are allowed up to four years to complete their degree. Upon your final semester you will receive a graduation clearance letter informing the NROTC Unit if you will pass your final semester in order to graduate and receive a commission. Commissioning occurs prior to when grades are posted. STA-21 graduates will commission as an Ensign in the Navy and MECEP graduates will commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Marine Corps.
Upon graduation, you will receive your orders: STA-21 from Mr. Joe Costello and MECEP from the MOI/AMOI.
Active Duty students do not go on leave during semester breaks like the other Midshipmen unless they have requested and been granted leave. The Commanding Officer generally grants periods of special liberty during the semester breaks as well. STA-21’s will have to place a leave chit with the STA-21 Advisor and MECEP’s will need approval from MOI/AMOI. On weekends, if you travel farther than 300 miles from the NROTC Unit, you are required to take leave.
