4 AGENDA Program History Current Program Pay and Allowances Eligibility Requirements Program Options Education Commissioning Application References and Points of Contact Other Commissioning Programs Guest Speakers/Q&A

5 PROGRAM HISTORY When Sailors today hear the term Seaman to Admiral, no doubt former Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Mike Boorda comes to mind. As a product of an enlisted-to-officer commissioning program in the early 1960s, Admiral Boorda was the first CNO to have risen from the enlisted ranks. As CNO, Admiral Boorda immediately reestablished the historic program, Seaman to Admiral, for young Sailors to earn their commission and become naval officers. The admiral believed people should have the opportunity to excel, and be all they can be, even if they dont get a perfect or traditional start.

6 CURRENT PROGRAM The Navy has combined most of its commissioning paths into one consolidated program, Seaman to Admiral-21. This program is designed to meet the goals of the Navy in the 21 st Century, while creating a fair and equitable system for outstanding active duty Sailors to receive top-notch college education and become commissioned officers in the Unrestricted Line, Nurse Corps, Supply Corps, or Civil Engineer Corps.

7 PAY AND ALLOWANCES Participants in the STA-21 program will: Receive full pay and allowances for their pay grade Be eligible for enlisted advancement Receive an education voucher of up to $10,000 per year, paid to the university for tuition, fees, and books Upon successful degree completion, be commissioned as active duty Ensigns in the U.S. Navy

8 ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS To be eligible to apply to the STA-21 Commissioning Program, a Sailor must: Be a U.S. citizen Be recommended by CO Be a high school graduate/GED Be able to complete requirements for a bachelor degree in 36 months or less Be able to complete degree and be commissioned prior to 27 th birthday (some waivers) Maintain a GPA of 2.5 or better SAT (min. 1000) or ACT (min. 41) within three years of application deadline Meet physical standards for appointment

9 PROGRAM OPTIONS STA-21 allows Sailors to apply to the Core Option or Target Group Option. Students in Core Program will be choose an Unrestricted Line community in their senior year. (Offers most flexibility in selecting a major and requesting schools to attend.) Students selected into a Target Group Option will, upon commissioning, be assigned to that options officer community.

11 PROGRAM OPTIONS Special Operations Special Duty Officer, Intelligence Special Duty Officer, Information Warfare Medical Corps New! What designator to apply for? Aptitude and career desires Seek mentor(s)

12 EDUCATION Selection into STA-21 will occur in the fall of each year. Some selectees will initially attend BOOST, then complete Naval Science Institute (NSI), or report directly to NSI. BOOST is designed to offer an individualized program of study to assist in transition to college. BOOST path may be 3 or 6 months long, depending on students needs. Those who are not designated to attend BOOST will report directly to NSI. BOOST is located at NETC Newport, RI.

13 EDUCATION The Naval Science Institute (NSI) Program is designed to teach officer candidates the fundamental core concepts of being a naval officer. This program provides competency in navigation, engineering, weapons, military history, justice, etc. NSI is located at NETC Newport, RI and lasts 8 weeks. Upon successful completion of NSI, the STA-21 officer candidates will report to an NROTC affiliated college or university to pursue their college degrees.

14 EDUCATION STA-21 applicants make up to three school choices during the application process, and CNET conducts actual student placement to the schools after selection into the program. This placement is based on several factors including available NROTC Unit openings, program option, etc. While selectees are strongly encouraged to pursue technical degree programs, participants are free to choose their major areas of study. Some of the many NROTC colleges and universities include: * University of Arizona * San Diego State University * Pennsylvania State University * University of Notre Dame * ODU/HU/NSU

15 EDUCATION Students in the STA-21 Program will attend school full-time year-round. All students are required to complete degree requirements in not more than 36 calendar months. STA-21 members are required to be enrolled in every academic semester offered by the college or university. Not all STA-21 students will begin their college education at the same time of year due to planned phasing of the program. Some may begin in the summer, others in the fall, and still others in the spring.
