    If one were to receive an NROTC scholarship, but after a year or two decided that the Navy was not the choice for them, what is the process for paying back the scholarship? Does the Navy charge you interest or do you just pay back the exact tuition? I'm just curious and have no interest in reneging on a commitment to my country. thanks for your help

    You get a freebie year...no harm no foul if you drop before you start your sophomore year. If you leave afterwards it is full payback, and if I recall correctly it does include interest.

    Agree Pima. No obligation until the first day of Sophomore year.

    I have never really thought about it but I wonder if payback includes tuition, books, stipend and any other items?

    I believe it is the entire kit and kaboodle. Gojira would know for sure.

    Per the NROTC website

    • Minimum of two years active enlisted service or recoupment of all tuition dollars paid may be required for midshipmen who disenroll or are disenrolled from NROTC Scholarship Program for academic or personal reasons after the first day of their sophomore year

    And these days it's never 2 years enlisted service.
