GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  The purpose of this MARADMIN is to publish a list of Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC) Professor of Naval Science (PNS), Executive Officer (XO), and Marine Officer Instructor (MOI) billet vacancies for FY21.
2.  The FY21 NROTC Selection and Slating Panel will convene on or about 21 September 2020.
2.a.  NROTC units are an essential component in the training of prospective naval officers.  Officers serving at NROTC units directly mentor, develop, and shape the future officer corps and must therefore be of the highest caliber.  Officers aspiring to NROTC duty must possess superlative leadership and academic qualities, be of sound moral character, and demonstrate superior physical fitness.
2.b.  Officers serving as a XO and MOI regularly support and augment summer training at OCS, seasonal training programs such as New Student Indoctrination, Career Orientation and Training for Midshipmen (CORTRAMID), and other events.
3.  Eligibility.  NROTC positions are open to all unrestricted officers that meet the following criteria:
3.a.  Grade.  Officers must meet the grade criterion (or be selected for promotion to that grade) of the associated duty for which they are applying.  Paragraph 5 lists available billets with the required grade along with additional requirements.
3.a.1.  Officers applying for MOI or XO must possess the career timing to serve a full tour of duty (36 months) as a pinned captain or major, respectively.  Requests for exceptions will not normally receive favorable consideration.
3.b.  FY21 mover based upon current prescribed tour length.
3.b.1.  Officers submitting packages who are scheduled to complete their prescribed tour length in FY22 or beyond will not normally be considered.
3.b.1.(a).  Lieutenants currently executing their first FMF tour will be afforded the opportunity to screen for NROTC duty in their third year when they are eligible to compete for promotion to captain and career designation.
3.b.1.(b).  Career officers executing subsequent tours will not normally be curtailed prior to fulfilling their prescribed tour length as available officer inventory may not support an early replacement.
3.b.2.  Officers may request via AA form to screen if they are scheduled to complete their prescribed tour length in FY22.  Requests must be endorsed by the first colonel in the chain of command and therein acknowledge a potential gap in staffing should the requesting officer be selected for NROTC duty.
3.c.  Academics.  Minimum requirement is a Bachelors Degree with a 3.0 undergraduate grade point average, waiverable at some schools to 2.5 if the record is otherwise outstanding.  If a billet requires a  Masters Degree, it will be listed under special requirements in paragraph 5.
3.d.  Physical Fitness.  High first class PFT recommended.
3.e.  Officers who are not yet career designated but will screen for designation by the FY21 Officer Retention Board #1 in spring 2021 may still apply.
3.e.1.  An officer who is selected for MOI but fails selection for career designation, or is selected for career designation and declines, will nullify their MOI selection and execute their EAS.
4.  Officers interested in NROTC duty who meet the above eligibility criteria must submit the documents listed below as part of their package to MMOA-3 no later than 8 September 2020 to the following organization address:  smbmanpowerofficerpr@usmc.mil.
4.a.  Electronic packages are to be submitted in a single file in Portable Document Format (ie '.pdf'.) with the following naming convention:"EDIPI-LASTNAME-FY21NROTC.pdf".  If unable to submit electronically, packages may be mailed to the below address:
    Commandant of the Marine Corps (MMOA-3)
    Attn:  FY21 NROTC Selection Panel
    3280 Russell Road
    Quantico, VA 22134-5103
4.b.  The package must include:
4.b.1.  Personal statement.  This is submitted in standard naval letter format from the Marine to CMC (MMOA).  This is the officers opportunity to express in writing their desire to serve on NROTC duty, elaborate on relevant personal strengths and experiences, and submit duty station preferences.  Applicants must include a prioritized list in preference order of all billets for which they are eligible.
4.b.2.  Command endorsement for captains and majors and majors (select) from the immediate chain of command, BN/SQDN or equivalent.
4.b.3.  One letter of recommendation.
4.b.4.  Official College Transcripts.  Official college transcripts are to be sent directly from the university or officer to MMRP-20 to be included in the officers OMPF.  If legible college transcripts are already included in the officers OMPF, a duplicate submission is not required.
4.c.  Official photograph.  Marines are reminded that current policy requires an official photograph to be submitted annually to their OMPF.
4.d.  Every effort will be made to match selected officers with their preferences.  However, by volunteering for NROTC duty, officers agree to be assigned to any available NROTC billet.  All requests to decline selection after the release of the selection MARADMIN must be made via naval correspondence with command endorsement.  All requests will be considered in the context of the needs of the Marine Corps for approval or disapproval.  Requests for declination by officers who volunteered and were selected for NROTC duty will not normally receive favorable consideration.  There is no deferral of NROTC/MOI selection.
