NSI - Uniform Requirements
click or hover to expand

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.
