    My son is applying for a Navy ROTC scholarship. He sent his SAT scores via the CollegeBoard to the Navy SAT code. His local area ROTC Navy coordinator also asked that he fax his score report to her. He faxed the info as requested. Seems she is having trouble getting the score info from both the CollegeBoard and fax. Now she also has asked him for his user id and password so she can access it herself. I advised him not to give her that info.

    Is this the process? Does the Navy ask candidates for their CollegeBoard user ids and passwords? Have others had similar experiences?

    I would not do that. This is one reason why I hated the Navy's process. They use those stupid "coordinators" rather than letting applicants do it on their own like the Air Force and the Army. She is probably just frustrated on her end in not having received the scores. In my NROTC application process, I never had to do this. I just faxed mine in and they were received, and my "coordinator" verified my ACT scores via my transcript that he received from my guidance counselor, who he met by actually driving to my school.
    If this "coordinator" is local (like a regular recruiter or something), I'd just copy the score sheet and take it to her myself. If that wasn't possible, I'd mail a copy to her. It is important to get this stuff done early, but I wouldn't give her my username and password to make it work.
    Also, on the application website, there should be some address of the central navy place where they receive all this stuff. I'd mail/fax a copy there too. But make sure you include a cover sheet with name and SS number on it to make sure it gets to the correct file.

    My sons coordinator said that he needed an official copy of his SAT scores. Since there isn't a code for his particular address on the College Board website, I called the College Board. I was able to request an official copy be sent to him directly, of course for an additional $10.50. If my son takes the SAT again this fall, I will have to do this again in order for them to go directly to the NROTC Coordinator. College Board said it would take four to six weeks before he received them. Hope this helps.

    DS Fedexed, faxed, emailed, and had SAT send scores to all ROTC scholarships, and MOCs. It's amazing what can get lost in the shuffle. Seemed that the email scanned copy of official SAT/ACT scores was the most effective delivery method. Many said that the official SAT scoring seemed to only arrive monthly and then needed to get uploaded into the system. Can get forgotten along the way.
