Naval Science Institute - Seaman to Admiral 21 Program

Welcome Aboard,

Congratulations on your selection to the NSI STA-21 Program, and Welcome Aboard! Your outstanding performance and enlisted service has led to your selection for this highly competitive program, and brought you to the rank of Officer Candidate in this highly competitive officer accession program. Although you officially become an Officer Candidate upon reporting, you will continue to receive your enlisted pay while attending NSI. Begin preparing yourself mentally for the challenges that lie ahead.

NSI STA-21 is a unique, one-of-a kind, officer-accession education and training program. It is time-compressed and provides significant academic challenges.

Due to the compressed class schedule, you should make every effort to get your personal affairs in order prior to reporting to prevent unnecessary distractions during this essential education and training evolution.

Your accomplishments thus far are noteworthy. Goals of strengthening your present academic foundation and embarking on a journey, towards a college degree and a commission as a Naval Officer are firmly within your reach. You will be challenged daily, academically, militarily, professionally, and physically! You should be prepared to devote the majority of your time and energy towards a serious and regimented lifestyle. Your success is proportional to your level of commitment.

Accountability....Responsibility....Authority....all come with gold bars!
