College Program


The college program provides a way to participate in the unit without a scholarship. Programmers participate in all unit activities except summer cruise, and their tuition is not paid for. However, they can apply for a sideload scholarship after participating in the unit for a year. Applications for the college program are submitted directly to the unit.


In order to be eligible for the College Program, you must:

  • Be a U.S. Citizen
  • Be a current or accepted student at the University of Washington
  • Not less than 17 years old by September 1 of year starting college and no more than 23 on December 31 of that year
  • Not have reached 27th birthday by December 31 of year in which graduation and commissioning are anticipated
  • Be physically and medically qualified for military service
  • Be motivated to serve as a commissioned officer in the US Navy
