All Saint Mary’s students completing the NROTC program at Notre Dame will take one Naval Science course at Notre Dame each semester. Students are able to take other courses at ND if the courses are not offered at SMC, such as Russian, or other foreign language courses. The Sophia program at Saint Mary’s outlines the required courses that are necessary to graduate.
Unfortunately the Nursing program at Saint Mary’s is no longer available for Navy options on scholarship. Requirements for the scholarship require Nursing students to be enrolled in a guaranteed nursing program all 4 years. Since Saint Mary’s nurses are not guaranteed all four years, the scholarship is not available.
