Prospective Navy Students

A School of Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE) education through the Seaman-to-Admiral (STA-21) program provides you with the tools to succeed as Commissioned Officer, and to later have a promising career as a civilian nuclear engineer or radiation health physicist.  

After completion of the Naval Nuclear Power School you can enroll in the STA-21 program to complete a three-year Bachelor's of Science degree at NSE. Engineering is an academically challenging field, and as a Navy student at OSU you’ll be held to a higher standard than traditional students. We want to see you make the grade: our world-class faculty, tutoring services and library are available to you.

Because you have 36 months to complete your degree, it’s important to understand how your transcripts will transfer to OSU. Please review the program requirements and contact us with any questions. You also need to be conscious of acceptance deadlines for the STA-21 program. Once your OSU application is completed, admissions decisions can be made in 2-4 weeks and sometimes in as little as one week. So please plan accordingly.
