All prospective cadets must be U.S. citizens, who meet our minimum age requirements (ages 10 through 17). Cadets must be committed to being a drug-free, unmarried, full-time student with at least a "C"-grade point average. Cadets must also have parental consent to join the program. We are looking for cadets who are interested in contributing as much as possible to the program by attending drills and upholding our standards of conduct.
A medical examination similar to a high school sports physical is required for all cadet applicants to the NSCC or NLCC. No one will be denied admission to the NSCC/NLCC due to a medical disability. Where a medical condition precludes full, unlimited participation, a Request for Accommodation (NSCADM 015) may be presented by the parent or guardian for review so the cadet may participate in NSCC activities to the maximum extent possible.
