    If I transfer from Fresno State University to San Diego State University after 2 years, can I still be able to do the NROTC College Program?

    FSU does not have an NROTC Program.

    SDSU does.

    Would it be possible for me to be able to enroll in the NROTC College Program after successfully transferring to SDSU from FSU?

    I don't think you can become a College Program participant after completion of sophomore year. I hope I am wrong.

    If you transfer as a 3rd year, I don't see it happening. Reason is by the 3rd year you must receive a scholarship or advanced standing or you are disenrolled. Maybe if you don't have enough credits and come in as a 2nd year you may have a chance but remember you will be competing with mids who have worked their tails off to get advanced standing or a sideload scholarship since day 1. This is of course IMHO but my DS went thru as a programmer and I have observed quite a bit. There is always OCS after college. Best yet talk with CO at SDSU and he will give you advise.

    I agree that getting a scholarship at this point may be difficult because they have really cut back on how many college programmers get them. And there will most likely have been others are already there working towards getting one. My son is in as a college programmer. Our understanding has always been that if you do not have a scholarship by your junior year or advanced standing, then you cannot continue. An option may be PLC. At my son's college there are a few who participate in various NROTC activities though they are in PLC. I am not sure if that is Marine option only.
