Abstract : Recently, considerable attention has been focused on the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) program and the post-accession performance of its graduates. The NROTC is one of two major programs by which regular officers are commissioned for service in the U.S. Navy. The NROTC program, offered through host colleges and universities, requires enrolled midshipmen to complete all institutional requirements for the baccalaureate degree in either a technical or scientific field or an academic major of interest to the Navy. In addition, specific Naval Science courses must also be completed. This study addresses the relationship of technical preparation to performance in post-accession training programs. It also provides a general assessment of the effectiveness of the NROTC program. Specific initiatives undertaken in support of this study were: (1) design and develop a comprehensive management information system by and through which pertinent data could be identified, tracked, and analyzed; (2) evaluate NROTC graduate performance in post-accession (follow-on) training; (3) identify academic knowledges required to support entry into post-accession training.
