Naval ROTC

Although the university does not have a Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) unit, qualified students may participate in the NROTC program at Rice University. The cross-enrollment program is an arrangement between the University of Houston, Rice, and the U.S. Navy, represented by the Naval Science Department at Rice University.

There are three NROTC programs leading to a commission in the reserve components of the Navy or Marine Corps:

  1. A two-, three-, or four-year scholarship program leading to a commission in the Navy or Marine Corps Reserve. (This program provides all tuition, books, school fees, and uniforms plus $200 per month.)
  2. A two-, three- or four-year college program that leads to a commission in the Naval or Marine Corps Reserve. (Uniforms and naval science course books are provided.)
  3. A two-year scholarship or college program for juniors and seniors (apply spring semester sophomore year).

Interested students should contact the NROTC Rice University.
