    No they don't. New York and Maine Maritime both have NROTC units and oddly enough Mass Maritime has a cross town Army ROTC program that meets on the MMA campus but they don't have an NROTC program. that being said- you can still receive a Navy Commission from Mass Maritime thru the MMR program but you can't use an NROTC scholarship there.

    What they have is a SIP program. I dont know what it stands for but what you can do is get paid $8000 a year for 4 years. and during college all you have to do is take naval science two or something like that. you also have to pass an easy fitness test once a year.

    and once you get out of college you have the choice to be in the active duty for three years or reserve for 6 or 8 years. and you would go into the special merchant marine division.

    and in the reserves you would only have to go for about two weeks a year and the dates are very flexible.

    i am looking at doing the same program! and also my facts might be wrong but i met with one of the recruiters and this is what i remembered that he told me so before you sign up please do not take what i said as fact! lol

    i hope this helped!

    I couldn't find this on the Mass Maritime Web site but at the attached NY Maritime site an explanation of the MMR/SIP program is available. The MMR program with SIP is the same for all of the Maritime Colleges:
