For all of these reasons and more, the Navy combined most of these current commissioning paths into one consolidated program that preserves the Seaman to Admiral name made popular by Admiral Boorda: Seaman to Admiral-21 (STA-21). The STA-21 Commissioning Program is designed to meet the goals of the Navy in the 21st Century, while at the same time creating a fair and equitable system for outstanding active duty Sailors to receive a top-notch college education and become commissioned officers in the Unrestricted Line ((URL); Restricted Line in Human Resources; Special Duty Officer in Intelligence, Warfare (formerly Cryptologic) and Oceanography; Staff Corps in Civil Engineering (CEC), Medical Corps (MC), Nurse Corps (NC), or Supply Corps (SC).

STA-21
The following fleet commissioning programs were combined to create the STA-21 Program:

•Seaman to Admiral
•Enlisted Commissioning Program (ECP)
•Aviation Enlisted Commissioning Program (AECP)
•Nuclear Enlisted Commissioning Program (NECP)
•Civil Engineer Corps Enlisted Commissioning Program (CECECP)
•Fleet Accession to Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC)
◦(Includes Nurse Option)
•Broadened Opportunity for Officer Selection and Training (BOOST)
What makes the STA-21 Program so different from most of the other commissioning programs is its fairness to the Sailor. Some of the previous enlisted commissioning programs required Sailors to pay their college tuition by themselves. Others removed the student from active duty status, thus taking away any source of income. The STA-21 Program will keep all participants on active duty at their current enlisted pay grade. This means they will receive all the pay, allowances, benefits, and privileges they currently enjoy and will still be eligible for enlisted advancement while in the program: Time spent in school will not count towards retirement, however, it will count towards pay purposes. Sailors will receive up to $10,000 per year to cover tuition, books, and fees. The Sailor will pay any costs above $10,000 per year. Participants attending inexpensive universities that do not require use of the entire $10,000 for any year will not be able to keep the difference.

Although the applicant's history of fleet performance will receive consideration during the selection process, emphasis will be placed on the identification of those applicants who possess the academic and leadership potential necessary to become outstanding Naval officers.

  • If applicant close to graduation-don’t obtain degree prior to starting program or will become ineligible. Once degree obtained, you now have to apply to OCS.
    Commissioned into USN this is a change
    Up to 36 mo OR option commissioning age, whichever is soonest
    We do not pay for graduate level courses if you complete your degree in less than 36 months
  • Once applicant gets to NSI, their enlisted clothing allowance stops.
    10K to UNIT, not to student if tuition is less than 10K, balance does NOT go to student. If more than 10K, student pays out of pocket.
    some universities that are more than 10K may cap charge to student at 10K (ex: JU) 10K is not part of income for applicant, doesn’t count for other grants or loans. Applicant may apply for other grants/loans but MAY NOT use TA.
  • Citizenship-birth or MUST HAVE naturalization papers with certificate number on it.
    CO recommendation- he must recommend – forwarded does not cut it.
    USNR must be on AD at time of application THROUGH time the selection results are released. If deactivated after selection, we will reactivate to go to school.
  • Qualifying ACT and SAT scores MUST come from the same test. If you take multiple tests, we will take your BEST scores!
    After April 05 the NEW SAT is in three sections. We will be looking at the Math and the Critical Reading sections of the test this year.
    To be eligible we require 500 Math and 500 Critical reading. Older test was 500 Math, 500 Verbal. We will still accept the scores from earlier tests if they are within three years of the 1 July application due date.
    ACT and SAT scores must be no older than three years from application due date.
  • Calculating Age: All selectees, plan on starting school summer term of each FY selection year. Add 3 years to your age as of summer term and that will determine if you meet the age qualification. Those who would complete the degree in less than three years and prior to the maximum commissioning age would still be considered. Already earned college credits would have to be used toward degree completion.
    At service selection (between Jr. and Sr. year), you will choose from URL communities ONLY. Pilot, NFO, SWO, SPECWAR (SEAL), NUKES and EOD. No CEC, HR, Intel, Information Warfare, Medical, Nurse, Oceanography, or Supply (these are RL and staff communities).
    Try and choose CORE as a secondary option if first option is a Target option. You must meet CORE age and vision requirements. If you do this may increase you chances of getting into the community you desire.
  • If CORE eligible but want nuke (can’t apply because you’re not at one of the three places) opportunity may exist at service selection if you major is appropriate and quotas exist. You will need to meet GPA requirements. It would also look better to be at one of the Nuke schools. Interviews will be required.
  • We know that you can complete your degree if you attend one of 18 Universities listed on the website.
  • ASTB scores needs to be above qualifying to be competitive. Qualifying scores are 4/5.
    Must meet vision qualifications (20/40 correctable to 20/20) at time of application. Prior eye surgery should be PRK or lasEk not lasik. Prior eye surgery still requires a waiver from BUMED and NMOTC so send all pertinent records pre- and post-operative.
    Must meet anthropometric measurements at time of application. Please see your local flight surgeon to verify you will meet requirements.
  • No special vision requirements beyond commissioning standards. ASTB required 4/5.
  • 1. SWO community is currently over manned. Expect this trend to continue.
  • No waivers for the Seabee rating requirement!
    Open to men and women of all ratings.
    ABET: Accreditation Board for Engineering & Technology
    NAAB: National Architecture Accrediting Board
  • Must be a SEAL.
    SDAP pay will continue if: You need to be selected for SPEC WAR Option and maintain your current SEAL qualifications. You will also need to continue performing the SEAL PRT. Recommend picking a school that is near a base/team that can oversee the yearly assessment of qualifications.
  • Require one of the following NECs: 5332/33/34/35/36/37/42/43 and 8493/94. No waivers for the NEC’s will be given!
    SDAP pay will continue if currently receiving, selected for EOD option, and maintain your qualifications (NEC).
  • Look and make sure you can get accepted at the College of Nursing not just the University. Many schools will not accept you into the nursing program until the beginning of your junior year. If you are not competitive and don’t get accepted, you will be returned to the fleet in an enlisted status.
    Recognize nursing programs are very linear . Courses are usually taken and offered in a set sequence. It can be difficult to complete in 3 years with out completion of prerequisites.
    Credit hours may be a combination of traditional classroom courses, college level entry program (clep) credit, on-line or distance learning programs, or military training credits provided the school to which the application is made accepts the non-traditional credits. Your record would be favorably reviewed if you have lots of science, Anatomy and Physiology, Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, etc.
  • Discuss post selection nursing issues:
    Selection to school---apply to more than one school!
    Accepted to School of nursing in addition to University
    Qualified for entry into School of Nursing doesn’t mean competitive! Think 3.5 GPA
    Degree plan reviewed by nursing faculty not university and also by unit. We also have a Nurse on staff that can be used to review degree plans.

  • Board is 3 weeks long. Each record is reviewed by a minimum of 3 senior naval officers with at least one of the same designator as the option choice.
    Many of board members are COs and XOs themselves.
    Board process reviews every record (even those determined not qualified) for quality assurance. Then in the process the cream of the crop float to the top, the less competitive to the bottom and the hard to sort to the crunch. Crunch records are often most likely reviewed again by up to 5 members. It is like swimming competitions where the difference can be as small as a thousandth of a point.
    The board is concerned with the “WHOLE” person concept!
