O-WEEK FAQ    

How do I determine my size and fit for my uniforms?
How do I determine my size and fit for my uniforms?

To determine size and fit for your uniforms, we strongly recommend you to review the Measurement Guidelines and Sizing Charts below. You can do the measurements yourself or use the services of a professional tailor/seamstress. To ensure the Navy Uniform Support Center processes the correct size, we recommend you include a copy of the completed Uniform Size Chart along with your completed Uniform Order Form.

NROTC Measurement Guidelines and Sizing Charts

Am I required to purchase all of the uniform items on the Uniform Order Sheet?
Am I required to purchase all of the uniform items on the Uniform Order Sheet?

If you have been officially accepted into the NROTC/SSMP, you will need to purchase all of the items on the list as you may be eligible for commutation. You will need to contact NROTC to determine your commutation eligibility.


If you are entering as non-NROTC/SSMP (License Option-Deck, License Option-Engine, Drill & Ceremonies), you will need to purchase all the items in the required section of the Uniform Order Form. We strongly recommend you purchase the Acrylic V-Neck Sweater, which can be worn as a second layer under the Windbreaker Jacket. We also highly recommend that license option cadets purchase the green duffle bag, or "sea bag".

Female cadets may elect to purchase the men's uniform shirts and trousers and corresponding belt and buckle. NROTC midshipman should check with the NROTC OIC for requirements before doing so.

 

Will the cost of the uniforms be added to my TAMUG Fee Statement?
Will the cost of the uniforms be added to my TAMUG Fee Statement?

No. Payment for the uniforms must be made by credit card or debit card directly to the Navy Uniform Support Center.

If I am on campus for my New Student Conference, may I pick up my uniforms?
If I am on campus for my New Student Conference, may I pick up my uniforms?

Yes, you may pick up your uniforms before O-Week; however, you will want to make sure your uniforms have been delivered. 

When it is confirmed that your uniforms have arrived, you may come by during business hours (Monday-Friday; 8:00am-5:00pm). You will need a photo ID for verification purposes. If someone else is picking up your uniforms on your behalf, they will need your written permission to do so plus your photo ID.
