Deciding where to start your career is one of the most important decisions you'll make. Launch your career before you leave college - enter the Nuclear Propulsion Officer Candidate (NUPOC) Program. Earn a generous monthly income from $ 3,400 per month for up to 30 months. Use it for college tuition, Books- Anything you need. Have the freedom to earn your degree. No uniforms. No drills. Just the top-notch education you planned for and the chance to graduate debt-free. And the world's most adventurous and prestigious nuclear engineering career waiting for you when you graduate. Choose your path. Choices include Submarine Officer, Surface Warfare Officer (Nuclear), Naval Reactors Engineer, and Nuclear Power School Instructor. Submarine Officer and Surface Warfare Officer (Nuclear) applicants also qualify for a $ 10,000 sign-on bonus upon acceptance and a $ 2,000 bonus after the completion of training. Who's eligible?

The Navy offers so much more than just money for college. Whoever you are and whatever your passion might be, you'll find diverse choices, ranging from health care to nuclear engineering. Programs like the Baccalaureate Degree Completion Program (BDCP) allow you to finish school with financial support of up to $ 85,000. The BDCP pays you a salary of at least during your last two or three years of schooling. With diploma in hand, you'll start your career with no student loans, free to concentrate on excelling as a Navy Officer. The Navy offers you the chance to travel around the world and to experience leadership sooner than in comparable positions in the civilian world.

Subject: no thanks


If you knew me, you would know that nobody in their right mind would ever put me in charge of anything with the word Nuclear in front of it.

Thank you for your consideration,
