In order to join the Naval Sea Cadet Corps one must meet the following criteria:

Physical Examination:  A medical examination similar to a high school sports physical is required for all cadet applicants to the Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) or Navy League Cadet Corps (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. 
Adult applicants must be in good health commensurate with their age group and be free from any ailment or condition that would prevent them from satisfactorily performing their primary duty of supervising youth. NOTE: Adults not physically qualified to perform all duties may still participate with a waiver from NHQ considering the parameters of their expected contribution to the NSCC program.
Education:  Applicants must be enrolled in school, either public or private, or a sanctioned home school program and have a satisfactory scholastic standing. Please include a copy of  the  applicants most recent report card.

Moral Character:
  Applicants must possess good moral character: be unmarried, not pregnant, drug free and be free of felony convictions.

Parental Involvement:
Parental support is needed in meeting the drill attendance requirements, transportation, personal appearance and particularly haircuts/hair styling.
