WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Navy has selected 226 enlisted Sailors to join its officer ranks through the Seaman to Admiral (STA-21) program and are named in NAVADMIN 329/09.

Seventy-three alternates were also chosen for consideration for the program in the event that a primary candidate cannot participate in the program. Primary and alternate candidates are required to execute the same eligibility actions in order to remain eligible for the program.

The next step for candidates is to complete a physical examination and submit acceptance letters and degree plans from up to three universities which host Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) units, to signify continued eligibility for the program.

Prior to attending NROTC, STA-21 candidates attend the Naval Science Institute (NSI) course at Officer Training Command in Newport, R.I. The eight-week course provides an opportunity for officer preparation and indoctrination.

As an NROTC student, candidates are allowed up to 36 months of full-time, year-round education to complete a baccalaureate degree.

During pursuit of their degree, selectees remain on active duty and continue to receive the benefits associated with their current pay grade to include pay and allowances.

STA-21 Sailors will join the 740 ensigns commissioned through NROTC annually and will enter into a range of warfare areas including submarine, surface warfare, aviation, supply, EOD and medical corps.
