    Currently I'm a senior in high school, and I was awarded the NROTC scholarship to my first choice school, UC Berkeley. However, I've realized that I want to pursue a Tier 1 major (moved up from when I said Tier 2 on the application) at my 2nd-choice college (UIUC) because of the engineering program offered, a club sport that is offered, and because I enjoyed the campus much more when I visited. I will be submitting the college applications within the next week and will hear admission decisions in February and March.

    When should I email Pensacola/NTSC about a transfer request? Can I do it right now or should I wait until March/April? Should I also tell all this information to the NROTC units at Berkeley and UIUC? When I request a transfer, am I put at the bottom of their "list" of NROTC applicants for that school? When are scholarship awardees typically notified of a transfer decision? Will Pensacola wait until I have been accepted to UIUC before transferring the scholarship?

    Congrats! It sounds like you have not received the paperwork from Pensacola yet. When my DD received the NROTC scholarship last year, the paperwork described what to do if you want to transfer the scholarship to another college. I believe you could not transfer until April, but I'm not certain. Anyway, the paperwork will give you all the details.

    Again, congratulations!

    Thank you very much! I received the email that told me I was offered the scholarship on October 10, but nothing has come in the mail yet. Time to start mailbox stalking! Lol
