Promotion System Links
The promotion system used at our Unit is self-directed. As per the Promotion Matrix listed below, Cadets need to have a combination of time in grade, good behavior, community/unit service hours, and pass an academic and practical drill test in order to promote to the next higher rank. Please note that in the course handouts that were sent home at the start of the school year, it stated that every Cadet must promote once, and attempt to promote twice, within the first three academic quarters of the school year in order to be eligible to return to NJROTC the following school year. Our promotion system is structured, predictable, and inherently fair to all. It is up to the individual Cadet to show the motivation to study for and pass their exams when they become time-in-grade eligible to do so. You control how fast you promote, and how far you will go.
