Prospective Midshipmen

Welcome aboard!

Congratulations on your decision to join the Naval ROTC Unit at Southern University. Below you will find the instructions and forms that must be completed in order to start this Fall.

Medical Qualification

Your highest priority should be to complete the required DODMERB physical (Scholarship Students Only).  This is the most time-critical part of getting ready for the fall and should be scheduled as soon as possible in order to have time for remedial examinations or waivers, if necessary. Without satisfactory completion of your medical qualification, you will not be eligible to receive scholarship benefits. You should have received a detailed letter included in your scholarship acceptance package with instructions on how to schedule and complete your physical. If you have any questions or concerns about the DODMERB physical process, contact the unit via email at or via phone at (225) 771-3646. College program midshipmen are required to have their primary care physician complete a medical examination and medical history questionnaire in lieu of the DODMERB physical (DD Form 2807-2).

Navy New Student Orientation

The Navy New Student Orientation (NNSO) takes place at the beginning of each fall semester.  The next NNSO is scheduled for August 2024.  If you have any questions, contact the unit via email at or via phone at (225) 771-3646.

Required Documentation

All prospective Scholarship or College Program Basic Midshipmen must complete the NROTC required documents in order to formally join the Unit. These forms will facilitate your administrative check-in and ensure your enrollment into the program prior to your report date. Reference your Welcome Aboard letter for additional form requirements. If you have not received a Welcome Aboard letter, contact LT Peter Carver at Forms Below:
