What is NUPOC?

The Naval Nuclear Propulsion Officer Candidate (NUPOC) Program is a collegiate program for students

It is important to note that the NUPOC program is separate from NROTC. This would be a more suitable
option for students who are within 30 months of graduation, not a part of NROTC, and have the desire
to serve in the nuclear Navy. Interested applicants will still need to meet the requirements outlined in
the additional information section.
