    2. Which school will you earn your degree from?
    3.What classes will you need to go to Cross-town for?
    4.If the school offers (RN) is that the only choice or just a option ?


    For the demonstration sake let say Boston University
    Cross-Town Affiliate:
    - Boston College (RN)
    - Northeastern University (RN Option only)

    1.When applying to a school for a NROTC scholarship with a cross-town affiliate what school do you attend classes?
    You'll attend the school that you are enrolled. If your school does not have the Military Science classes that you are required to take, you'll go to the cross-town school for just those classes.

    2. Which school will you earn your degree from?
    The school that you applied to, were accepted at and at which the vast majority (other than Military Science related) classes are held.

    3.What classes will you need to go to Cross-town for?
    Only the Military Science classes that your school doesn't offer.

    4.If the school offers (RN) is that the only choice or just a option ?
    I don't understand this question. If you are majoring in Nursing (BSN) then you will take those classes at the school you are enrolled even if they are also offered at the cross-town ROTC school. Again, you only need to take the classes (ROTC related) at the cross-town school that are not offered at your school.

    I hope I have understood your questions correctly. If not please ask again and I'm sure someone with more knowledge / experience will chime in to help.

    Cross town traffic

    I guess my question to #4 should have read. On the NROTC web site it has a RN by a school name does that mean you can only go that route.

    Thanks again.

    As I understand this designation it means:
    RN - accepted Navy RN program (other majors may also be acceptable)
    RN Only - the only major that the Navy will accept at the university is RN (BSN).

    Hopefully if I'm incorrect someone else will post. I would contact the ROTC person at the school you wish to attend or the cross-town alternative to get an official response.

    aglages - You are right.

    From the BU NROTC website:
    http://www.bu.edu/navyrotc/prospective-students/faq/

    If you want to go to Northeastern University your ROTC options are Army, Air Force and Navy- Nurse.
