Does anyone know how the 4-year NROTC scholarship tuition payment works? My son is an incoming freshman with a four-year NROTC scholarship, and the fall tuition payment at his school is due August 15th, but he doesn't report to the NROTC Unit for orientation week until August 18th. I assume his scholarship won't activate and the benefits won't be paid to the school until after he reports to the unit on the 18th. So the question is, is he supposed to pay the tuition on its due date, and then get a refund once the Navy activates his scholarship and pays the school the tuition? Any info anyone has greatly appreciated, thanks!
