United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps

Grey Ghost Division

Correspondence Coursework

An important part of Cadet Advancement is learning about the United States Navy.  You will gain knowledge by studying the same courses that U.S. Navy Sailors and Petty Officers study for their advancement.  NSCC Sea Cadets in Grey Ghost Division should work on the NSCC Correspondence Courses at home and submit answers via email.  Exams are taking during drill.

NLCC League Cadets in T.S. Kearsarge study the NLCC SYLLABUS and can work on the Syllabus assignments at home, but will also have opportunity to study during drill.

There are three important steps to complete your coursework:

1.       Find the course assignment you need for your next rank and study the content

2.       Find the questions you need to answer for each assignment

3.       Download the answer sheet and record the answers

4.       Submit your answer sheets for scoring to the Training Officer, MIDN Wesley Spruiell
