    I have started to fill out the NROTC application and I got to the NROTC Interests section where I need to list the schools and major, etc. While searching under majors, chemistry was not listed as an option. On the NROTC website Chemistry is listed as a tier 2 major and I know that Chemistry is definitely an available major offered by colleges. What should I do about this? I listed Biological sciences (tier 2) for now and the application is not submitted so there is always time to change.

    Any advice is appreciated, thank you. :smile:

    Has anyone else has this problem? In addition, I heard it is possible to switch majors laterally like tier 2 to tier 2 major. So would it be possible to switch from Biological sciences to a Chemistry major since they are both tier 2?

    Thanks again.

    Shouldn't be a probelm long as they are both in tier 2....from my understanding.

    Don't know why Chemistry wasn't listed as a major......i thought it was listed right above civil engineering.

    It is listed above civil engineering on the NROTC website which is why I know it is Tier 2 and available. However, on the actual online application it is missing.

    Is Chemistry a major that is offered by your first choice school? The website won't let you choose a major until you put in the school, so maybe it is school driven?:confused:

    I know for a fact that my first choice has a major in chemistry. Plus, they listed a major that my first choice doesn't offer.

    I'm interested in being a nurse in Army or Navy. Do you need to have a 4 year nursing degree? I wanted to major in political science or history at Drexel University. Also, how competitive are NROTC and AROTC scholarships?

    I received a Tier 2 NROTC scholarship this year and I had a similar problem. My intended major was and still is Quantitative Economics however on the application itself I couldn't find it on the drop list. I just chose a different tier 2 major (I think physics) and it all worked out the same.

    Your scholarship is tied to a tier, not to a major- remember that.
