Preparation for New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation is a physically demanding evolution that will push our incoming students physically and mentally while providing the tools for future success as Midshipmen.  To prepare for this evolution, New Students should complete the following:

  • Complete and return the forms in the Welcome Aboard packet.
  • Increase physical readiness standards to surpass the minimum standards set by the Navy and Marine Corps.
  • Check early housing assignments the week prior to New Student Orientation at your home university.
  • Purchase and pack the necessary items for New Student Orientation.
