Discussion in 'ROTC' started by SamAca10, Aug 6, 2009.
Is it possible to do NROTC but cross commission into the Coast Guard?
This is a "sort of" kind of answer. Several of the senior Military colleges including VMI, Norwich, Va Tech, Texas A&M have a program with the USCG called the Direct Commission Selected School program (see below). Licensed graduates of the state Maritime Colleges (Maine, Massachusetts, New York, Texas and California) also have a Direct Commissioning option in the USCG. The DCSS Link is below:
Direct Commission Selected School
The Direct Commission Selected School program is a great opportunity for college graduates who were exposed to military training while earning their degree, to pursue an exciting and invigorating career in the Coast Guard. You will be able to take on responsibility fast, make critical decisions, and tackle challenging assignments.
