INFORM Information and Instructions

New midshipman orientation, also known as INFORM, will be conducted from 15 August 2016 until 19 August 2016. Students will report to the NROTC Unit at Georgia Tech on Tuesday August 15 for admin processing and uniform issue before being transported to Camp Westminster for physical training and student orientation. You must be fully medically qualified by DODMERB or have a sports physical from a family physician clearing you for rigorous physical activity in order to participate in INFORM.

Further information and schedules will be provided in June as the training schedule is confirmed. Based on the dates of INFORM, all NROTC students are eligible to attend FASET 6 which will take place August 13th and 14th. Information on how to attend FASET 6 was sent to all incoming freshmen via e-mail. Contact nrotc@gatech.edu with any questions.

Students should be prepared to complete and excel at the Navy PFA (Marine PFT for Marine scholarship candidates).

The Navy PFA consists of two minutes of situps, two minutes of pushups, and a 1.5 mile run. Students must receive at least a ‘Good’ in every category, though all students are expected to exceed this standard. Scholarships will not be activated if the student fails the PFA or does not meet physical standards. This means that their tuition will not be paid by the scholarship until they meet the standards. It is important that students prepare themselves physically for INFORM to avoid any issues!
