It was welcome news to learn of the return of Naval ROTC to Princeton (On the Campus, March 19). What was not clear was whether ROTC is now a full-credit course. Any instructional program that teaches leadership, discipline, and service is certainly deserving of full credit, and I trust Princeton ROTC has regained accreditation.
Editor’s note: According to University spokesman Martin Mbugua, no academic credit is given for ROTC courses. He said the Navy and the Army can submit requests for academic credit under criteria used by the faculty to review all University courses; any course approved for credit would be open to all students.
