(6) Demonstrate active participation in the NROTC Program at the beginning of each Academic Term. I will be considered an active

the NROTC Program, including but not limited to, School courses, Naval Science courses and drill. Failure to comply with this 45-day requirement
will (A) render me ineligible to receive any Scholarship Benefits for that Academic Term, meaning that I will be liable for any costs assessed by the

the Navy. For purposes of this Contract, “Academic Term” means the portion of the Academic Year (as defined in Paragraph 2.a.(2)), typically

a. To a Non-Navy/Marine Corps ROTC Program. If I request a transfer to the ROTC program of a military service other than the Navy or
Marine Corps, I understand that the Navy will treat this as a request for disenrollment from the NROTC Program.
b. To a Different NROTC Unit or NROTC Program School. If I request a transfer to a different NROTC unit or to a different educational
institution that participates in the NROTC Program, I understand that the Navy will process my request in accordance with the Regulation. Such a
transfer requires, among other things, the prior, written consent of the commanding officers of both the losing and gaining NROTC units. No such
transfer shall be considered approved or effective without the prior, written consent of an authorized Navy official.
5. MILITARY SERVICE OBLIGATIONS.
a. Incurring an Active Enlisted Service Obligation or Tuition Reimbursement. I understand and agree that I will incur either an active enlisted
service or a reimbursement obligation, as specified in Paragraph 6, if I withdraw or am disenrolled from the NROTC Program after the Obligation
Point, defined below.
The “Obligation Point” is determined as follows (student initials one of the following as applicable):
If I am the recipient of a National Scholarship and the date of my award letter is prior to the first day of post high school classes at any college or
university, including without limitation community or junior college, for which I was registered to attend, then my obligation date is:
01 SEPTEMBER 20_____ Students Initials__________
If the Navy disenrolls me from the NROTC program or I provide written notice to the PNS that I am withdrawing from the NROTC program before
my obligation date, then I will not have an obligation. The written notice must be received by my PNS before the obligation date, and if I am under
18 years of age at the time I withdraw, it must also be signed by my parent or legal guardian.
In all other cases, the Obligation Point is the Effective Date of this Contract as witnessed by my signature in section 8 of this contract. Upon signing
this contract, I will incur an obligation for active enlisted service or reimbursement. I may not withdraw or be disenrolled from the NROTC program
without incurring an active enlisted service or reimbursement obligation.

(a) From Active Duty. If I am entering the NROTC Program from active duty, I will be conditionally released from my active duty
obligation and will sign a new enlistment contract for the period of time that I will be in the NROTC Program. On signing the new enlistment
contract, I will be transferred to the Reserves, subject to the provisions of Paragraph 5.b.(2)(c) below. This release and transfer will be effective as
of the day prior to my first day of class at the School. I understand that during the time I participate in the NROTC Program, I will be entitled only to

my continued participation in the NROTC Program.
(b) From Inactive Duty. If I am entering the NROTC Program from a reserve component, I will be conditionally released from my
enlistment contract, and will sign a new enlistment contract for the period of time I will be in the NROTC Program, subject to the provisions of
Paragraph 5.b.(2)(c) below. The new enlistment contract will provide that I will continue to serve in the reserve component but, during the period of
