Seaman to Admiral Program
The  BOOST  Program  provides  successful students  with  a  4-year  undergraduate  education.    It opens a direct pathway for enlisted personnel to attain professional status as a naval officer after graduation from college.  The BOOST Program helps personnel acquire the scholastic skills and academic credentials that place them on a par with their college-bound peers. Before  helping  personnel  apply  for  the  BOOST Program,  the  ESO  should  ensure  applicants  are genuinely interested in pursuing a Navy career.  Those persons  selected  are  expected  to  enter  college  well prepared  to  meet  the  academic  challenges  and demands of a commissioning education program. Naval Educational and Training Center, Newport, R.I., conducts BOOST training.  It provides a rigorous 10-month  college  preparatory  curriculum  consisting of mathematics, English, science, computer science, campus skills, and military training.  Individuals who graduate  from  the  BOOST  program  and  accept NROTC  scholarships  are  released  from  active  duty into  the  Naval  Reserve  and  assigned  to  an  NROTC unit.  BOOST graduates who are accepted by USNA r e p o r t    t o    t h e    A c a d e m y    f o r    P l e b e    S u m m er indoctrination.
