    Does anyone have experience with how an NROTC MIDN transfers from NROTC to USNA?

    DS is being told by LT Advisor at NROTC unit that he needs to DOR from NROTC unit prior to I-Day. Want to make sure this is correct as this unit has never had a MIDN receive an appointment to USNA before. And there was some confusion/ miscommunication during the NROTC nomination process.

    Any thoughts?

    My DS was told the same by his LT Advisor (a Naval Academy graduate - not that it matters). His NROTC unit has sent a couple of kids to the Naval Academy and the LT Advisor has proven to be extremely competent/reliable. BTW, the unit has been very supportive too. All around great experience for my DS.

    I am sure NavyNola will chime on this. From my understanding it does require a DOR for a Mid 4/C. For someone further in the program a waiver was required. Be curious is this is still true today or not.

    It makes sense. The job's never done until the paperwork is complete. I would think he could remain until the end of the semester though, but it's all only my surmise.

    We have not had a mid transfer from our NROTC unit to a SA in the past couple years I've been here, so I'm not sure how that process works exactly. The unit certainly has the ability to contact NSTC for further guidance. It wouldn't be inappropriate for a parent to email the unit's XO in a circumstance like this, just to be sure.

    That is encouraging news. Have you seen amy of the paperwork or have any insight into the nuts and bolts of how this works?

    No, that's above my level of involvement. DS said it was a 'form' and a 'letter' submitted at the end of the semester. He said the unit and USNA let the NROTC command in Pensacola know of the appointment. Didn't sound that hard. Important, but not hard.
