You will purchase all necessary Uniforms during your first week of
training at NSI. Until uniform fitting and issue, Officer Candidates
will wear official Navy PT gear as the Uniform of the Day. Do not purchase uniform
items prior to arrival. Uniform items are very specific, and purchasing
them from any source other than an authorized Navy Uniform Store may
result in unnecessary expenditures.
Any uniform items you may already own that are the same for both
officer and enlisted (i.e. all weather coat, Navy issue PT gear, black leather
gloves, ribbons/medals/warfare devices, etc.) should be brought with you. Prior Chiefs should
bring all khaki uniform components as well. If the Class Officer or
Senior Enlisted Class team member determines items are unserviceable,
new items will be required to be purchased.
The typical Uniform of the Day at NSI will be Service Khakis.
All Officer Candidates with the exception of prior Chief Petty
Officers will receive a one-time uniform allowance to cover the cost for
the initial uniform issue. For further questions concerning uniform
allowances, please check the below link.
