I would like to know where you get the $12,000 figure? Room and board are listed in the 6,444 range - It is my understanding that tutition and all fees are paid by nrotc scholarship - I would recommend you check with NROTC or VMI's office-I would imagine they have experience with the scholarships and would be able to explain clearly outstanding costs not covered by scholarship Good luck!
Thanks for the luck!
and of course, we'll research this if he takes this path...I'm still in sticker shock but I'm thankfull and proud he wants to take one of the ROTC scholarships offered.
I get the $12,000 for VMI by looking at the Citadel schedule, as I think they are close in cost.
My interpretation and understanding of the AROTC Scholarship is tuition and books, that would leave us short for about $11,839 due in clothing, laundry, room, board and infirmary.
The Citadel Fee schedule:
Tuition and fees (unlimited credits, out of state) $21031
Double room $2800
Board (20 meal plan) $2950
Books/Clothing $5630 (Note: $5,000 of this figure is The Citadel uniforms for 4 years, paid up front 1st year, drops to $2,500 each year after)
