To be an eligible candidate, you must: * Be a U.S. citizen * Be at least 19 years of age and no older than 29 at the time of commissioning * Meet the Navy's physical standards General qualifications may vary depending upon whether you're currently serving, whether you've served before or whether you've never served before.
