Seaman to Admiral Program

Seaman-to-Admiral Program

The Seaman-to-Admiral (STA-21) Program is the Navy’s way of providing an opportunity for enlisted personnel to earn a commission. Officer Candidates attend UT or Huston-Tillotson University year-round, working toward that commission in the warfare specialty they applied for under the STA-21 program.

The University of Texas Admissions Office is committed to providing STA-21 Selectees the opportunity to apply and earn admission within the competitive admission process. Additionally, UT NROTC will work closely with the Admissions Department such that all Navy timelines are met. Please contact the UT NROTC Unit, if you have questions regarding the admissions process for STA-21 Selectees. UT NROTC encourages all applicants to apply to another university as a backup in case you do not get accepted to UT.
