For individuals who are considering enrolling in a Navy ROTC program in the state of Michigan, they have a couple of options to choose between. Their choice will likely depend on their career goals, campus preference, and degree offerings.

View popular schools

Within the state of Michigan, students have two options when it comes to selecting a university that offers a Navy Reserve Officers' Training Corps (NROTC) program. In order to decide between the schools, students may want to consider the location of each school, what degree programs the schools offer, and their future career paths. We will learn a bit more about each program in greater detail below.

Program Highlights

The University of Michigan is the only school in the state of Michigan that is a host campus for a Navy ROTC program. However, students enrolled at Eastern Michigan University also have the option of participating in the NROTC program by traveling to the University of Michigan's campus to complete all NROTC requirements. As the two campuses are located around 20 minutes away from each other by car, this may not be a major inconvenience for students attending Eastern Michigan University. In addition to learning some details about the NROTC program, we will also learn about the degree offerings at the two schools in the information below.

University of Michigan

The second largest university in the state of Michigan with an enrollment of over 45,000 students, the University of Michigan acts as the host school for the state's NRTOC program. Students who enroll in the program can potentially receive full tuition scholarships for their entire four years of study, along with funds to cover books, fees, and some living expenses. Students can also participate in the NROTC program through the College Program, which is designed for students who join NROTC later in college or for those who have not yet received a scholarship. One of the ways that influences which students receive scholarships is by degree program selection. NROTC considers some degrees to be Tier 1, others to be Tier 2, and the rest fall under the category of Tier 3. Students pursuing Tier 1 and Tier 2 majors comprise around 85% of those students who received NROTC scholarship. At the University of Michigan, Tier 1 degree programs include aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, naval architecture and marine engineering, and nuclear engineering. Tier 2 programs include computer science, civil engineering, materials engineering, and engineering physics.

Eastern Michigan University

With an enrollment of over 21,500 students, Eastern Michigan University (EMU) is still a large public school but significantly smaller than the University of Michigan. Students at EMU will travel to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor multiple times per week in order to participate in the NROTC program offered there, so the NROTC program details are the same as those mentioned above. However, students may be more interested in attending one of EMU's academic programs. Tier 1 degree programs include mechanical engineering and electronic engineering, while EMU's Tier 2 programs include computer science, engineering physics, biochemistry, and mathematics. EMU's annual in-state tuition is also a few thousand dollars less than the University of Michigan's, which may play a role in the student's decision especially if they do not receive an NROTC scholarship.
