There are two ways to join the Old Ironsides Battalion. The first is to earn a National NROTC Scholarship while in high school. The application process typically begins in the spring of junior year and closes during the winter of senior year. The second way to join is through the College Program. This option is available to prospective midshipman who either were not accepted for a national scholarship or who are already in college.
