About Us

The Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps San Diego Consortium was established in the summer 1982.  It is composed of two individual units, NROTC University of San Diego and NROTC San Diego State University. The Battalion has grown from an initial cadre of 28 to its current strength of over 200 students. This includes Midshipmen, active duty Marines participating in the Marine Enlisted Commissioning Education Program (MECEP), and active duty sailors who have been selected for the Seaman to Admiral 21 (STA-21) Officer Candidate program. The NROTC consortium has offices and offers Naval Science courses at both USD and SDSU campuses.

San Diego Cross-Town Affiliates

Several universities in the San Diego area are affiliated with the NROTC San Diego Consortium.  Students from these universities are able to participate with the unit, providing more diversity, resources, and leadership opportunities:
