    Hi! I am currently a freshman in college and I applied for the 4 year scholarship, I have heard of the 30 credit limit for collegiate students, and I was wondering if anyone knew if they count all credits completed in the first year. I will be at 30 at the end of spring semester, but I submitted my application after fall semester, when I was under 30 credits. Any help is appreciated!! Thank you!

    • Students with 30 or more semester hours or students with 45 or more quarter hours of college credit upon submission of the online application are not eligible for the Navy ROTC National Scholarship. It is recommended that these students contact the Professors of Naval Science at the Host University's Navy ROTC Unit to discuss other scholarship opportunities.
      • College credits do not count until an applicant has graduated high school and completed a term of college; then all college credits earned (prior to and after high school graduation) count towards the eligibility requirements.
      • If you are a high school graduate and complete a term of college prior to submitting your application, all college credits earned (in high school and in college) are counted towards the credit limit.
      • If you are a high school graduate and are enrolled in college, all college credits anticipated to be earned by June of the application year (defined as April to January) will count towards the credit limit.

    We have been told that this number depends on transferrable credits, and that high school AP course that are dual enrolled do not count. We had the same issue. He is in first year of college and earned 17 hours. He also had 27 dual enrolled hours in HS. We have been told not to worry about it. I think they are only looking at actual college hours earned in actual college. Needless to say, our HS sophomore will be taking AP classes for GPA boost but WILL NOT be dual enrolled in any of them, as most of them will not transfer out of state anyway.
