NJROTC CADET HIGHER EDUCATION - SAT AND ACT ONLINE COURSE
Encl: (1) Parent Letter
1. The Navy JROTC is continuing an important program designed to increase our cadets' opportunities for higher education. To help accomplish that goal, we are continuing the internet based Online SAT and ACT preparation course at no cost to participating cadets. The course will better prepare students to take the SAT or ACT and attain a competitive score. Cadets will learn test-taking strategies in order to improve scores on the SAT/ACT and on other standardized tests.
2. This course is being offered to motivated cadets who demonstrate a resolve to complete the course of instruction and improve their standardized test results. Results from previous years demonstrate that parental involvement and instructor monitoring of progress were prime factors in successful completion. Instructors shall ensure that parents/guardians of cadets are notified that their cadet is participating. Enclosure (1) is an example notification letter to parents/guardians.
3. Internet access is required to participate. Cadets will access the course as follows: http://jrotccollegeprep.com/ Cadets can register for the SAT or ACT prep course, but not both.
NOTE: Instructors should obtain and store cadet user names and passwords in case cadets forget/lose their information. Cadets who have previously registered and are continuing the program remain registered for 365 days from initial registration.
4. To ensure completion and maximum benefit of the program, instructors will be given access to the accounts at their unit to monitor cadets' progress. Instructors will receive the information necessary to monitor cadet progress from the Area Managers. Basically, the information for instructor log on for the jrotc college prep web site follows. Each school's instructors will use their UIC as their user name; it is case sensitive so UICs are CAPS then the password is "njrotc" .example; user name: "3560A" password: "njrotc". The Area Manager and NJROTC HQ will also have access to monitor unit/cadet participation.
5. The SNSI will recognize cadets completing the course with the Academic Ribbon or device for a subsequent award as appropriate in accordance with the Cadet Field Manual. Other incentives/recognition may be added locally by the SNSI at his/her discretion.
6. Ongoing valuable information regarding this program is posted on the NJROTC portal in the curriculum corner instructor section. Your special attention to this effort will have valuable short- and long-term impacts on participating cadets and the NJROTC program as a whole. In advance, thank you for your contributions to this important educational effort.

Physicals Required for JROTC Cadets
Physicals are now required for JROTC cadets that participate in State or other “extra-curricular” competitions. ALL students in JROTC do not have to complete this requirement, only those participated in activities outside the normal class curriculum.
This information was discussed at several A.D.’s meetings at the end of July and was clarified in this manner as well.
I will let our staff know that there is still some confusion and we can then send out another clarification to our A.D.s.
Let me know if you have any questions or need anything else.
